What you should know:
If you're looking for a no-frills way to help kids familiarize themselves with—and eventually master—the art of word problems, look no further. MathPad 4 – Word Problems is an exceptionally easy app to use to help with word problem practice.
Once the app is downloaded, it skips an introduction and launches straight into word problems that tackle fourth grade math essentials, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, time, money and fractions. The simple interface asks young learners punch in answers on a calculator-style keyboard, with correct answers highlighted in green and incorrect answers in red. As kids work through problems, they become increasingly more difficult. An information icon allows you some customization, but lacks the ability to focus on specific functions a child may struggle with.
The app also offers no explanation or correct answer for problems, which can be troublesome for kids who are totally lost. While this app is good for word problem practice, a lack of engaging elements will leave kids feeling like this math practice is more of a chore than a game.
