Teacher Review

Sumdog is a way for kids to practice math skills while playing fun, math-related games against friends, classmates, or students from around the world. Games are individualized for each kid's ability level, so users can play against opponents who have the same skills. It's free, but a subscription to Sumdog Premium provides more games and more detailed feedback.

Kids can learn math skills including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. They can practice fractions, decimals, and percentages and eventually move on to solving equations. They'll learn patience and perseverance as games ramp up the challenge, and if they persevere they'll get to watch their scores improve. Sumdog is great for kids at all levels. They'll go crazy for the games while parents will see marked skill improvement.

The app also features a nice avatar system where students earn coins for each correct answer. The coins help them 'level up' to another animal, and they can use them to buy accessories for their avatars. By far, the most engaging aspect is competing with kids from around the world in the games. Each games has up to 4 players, and by default it will connect you with 3 other random players on the site. It's really cool to start to see students from Australia and England as you play into the wee hours of the night and those kids start to wake up.
