Pros: The number of activities and skills covered could make this a useful classroom resource.

Cons: Limited navigation and selection options and only having a single user profile make it tricky to use in the classroom.

Bottom Line: This subscription-based app has tons of math activities but might have limited usefulness in the classroom.

The games in Math Lingo are colorful, fun, and clearly designed with young users (ages 2–8) in mind. The games can be used either as a way to introduce skills to kids (with friendly animations and narrators guiding and teaching the skills) or as a way to reinforce what has already been taught. The games ask a series of repetitive questions to make sure kids get a chance to practice. The feedback is encouraging, and there's lots of confetti and celebrations for correct answers, which might help kids build positive relationships to math. The questions cover a variety of math topics, but you have to progress along in the game to get to new skills, and you start off with pretty basic skills initially, so it's not a great tool for targeting individual topics easily. Overall, Math Lingo creates a positive way for kids to practice math skills with fun, easily accessible characters.

Overall Rating

Engagement

The volume of activities at a variety of levels will likely keep kids motivated.

Pedagogy

Activities are thoughtfully created and aligned to standards, but primarily targeting by age range and having to scroll through activities limits personalization.

Support

Voiced supports are helpful, but multilingual options would be a great addition. A resource center or hints for kids would also be great.

Great interactive way of visual learning
This app is constructed the exact same as "TinyTap" but they are both very well organized apps.
