BrainPOP offers some of the best educational content around. Yes, this includes math, but that’s only one topic among many, including arts and music, science, history, health, social studies, and more. Daily videos feature straight-man Tim and the wise-cracking robot Moby. (Moby only beeps, but you know those beeps are wise cracks.) Videos are funny, age-appropriate and offer impressively accessible explanations about a wide array of topics. You will get your money’s worth if you pay for this service—the video library is deep. Younger kids (officially “kindergarten through 3rd grade”) may enjoy BrainPOP Jr. Movie of the Week. Try out the free version of the apps to see what your elementary-school child prefers.
