DragonBox Algebra 12+
Learn Algebra, whilst playing a game and growing your own dragon! How can you not be intrigued by that!
DragonBox Algebra fuses good lessons with kickass graphics to really keep them engaged. The danger with many of these apps is that whilst they are good teaching aids they still feel like school - this puts the fun slap bang in the middle of maths.
The player learns at his/her own pace by experimenting with rules that are introduced gradually. Progress is illustrated with the birth and growth of a dragon for each new chapter.
Top end in cost - but this covers a lot of ground and is beautifully made.
- Advanced Algebra
- Positive and Negative signs
- Addition of Fractions (Common Denominators)
- Collection of Like Terms
The Good Stuff.
Beautifully crafted, works as an intro to post-beginner algebra or as a refresher for adults. Very engaging.
The Bad Stuff:
The Price - but really - you can see where the money goes, actually money well spent.
Aimed at 12+, but you may be able to get in early.
