Full Review:

Looking for a study aid for young number crunchers that won’t drive you crazy with annoying sound effects? Look no further—this quiet and customizable practice app makes it easy for kids to move at their own paces.

Features like "minute math" and "try again" are simple for budding mathematicians to turn on and off when they want to either challenge themselves or ease into a new math application. Scores, which pop-up instantly, act as instant motivation; kids have the option of saving the scores or starting from scratch. There are few bells and whistles here, making Kids Math Fun more ideal for a classroom than a noisy arcade-style alternative. However, the lack of interactive surprises and variety could leave kids disinterested after a while.

The graphics are great and—rare for a math app—appeal to both boys and girls, free of princesses, pirates, or any other gender-typical imagery. There are no levels of difficulty to move through; the emphasis is on decimals, multi-digit operations and other basic fourth-grade skills. Little learners simply work their way through problems and keep score. With no penalty for wrong answers, children are encouraged to keep trying until they nail each problem, making this a solid choice for self-paced practice and study.

Teacher Features:
This app is suitable for classroom use since it has no annoying sound effects to disturb others and can be played alone. It’s a good choice for quiet study periods, and the “share” feature allows kids to share scores with the teacher or other students.
