My ds(8, yr3).uses manga high, only for the free part.
Today I realised he was doing topics from KS4.
What year group is equivalent to KS4? I haven't got a clue since I'm a foreigner(although I know he is good at maths), and bit worried he is just moving forward too quickly without understanding concepts properly.

We used it in Y3 and Y4, found it to be v good for times tables and introducing complex concepts visually. I found DDs math skills began to fly in Y5 and 6 and she was doing work beyond KS2 by then. I'd say if your son is managing higher levels of Manga High, let him enjoy! You'd have to proactively check how he manages basic operations/concepts to be sure he is secure if you wanted to know for certain.

Key stage 4 is Years 9-11 (should really be 10 & 11 but many schools now have a 2 year key stage 3 & 3 year KS4.

So basically it's GCSE level but that covers a wide range eg dd was doing foundation level GCSE stuff in Years 7 & 8 but will be dong higher level for her exams.

Thank you, powerstation and Balletgirlmum .
Problem is, he is quick to learn the basic use of the homepage, and navigates himself. And I am still confused about how to use the site myself. So, since this site has nothing inappropriate, I gave him the free rein, and didn't realise what he was doing.
Good to know it has worked for your dd, powerstation. Thank you for advice.

BelfastBloke, manga high is a maths website. You can sign up and use part of the site(basic package) for free. It seems great.
