Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

What’s It About?
XTRAMATH is a free math fluency program that helps kids practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Mr. C, who talks kids through the tasks, is a National Board Certified teacher from Seattle. Emphasis is placed on accuracy first and then speed.
Is It Any Good?
XtraMath tasks are just straightforward arithmetic problems. Kids get immediate feedback, and the problems are tailored to their specific needs. Parents and teachers can track student’s progress using fluency reports. Similar websites such as IXL and Reflex:Math Fact Fluency have bright images and fun games -- things XtraMath lacks -- but these sites also come with a steep price tag, and XtraMath is free. Bottom line: XtraMath is free and gets the job done, but it isn't much fun.
