Have you forgotten most of your algebra? Algebra Touch will refresh your skills using touch-based techniques built from the ground up for your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch.

Say you have x + 3 = 5. You can drag the 3 to the other side of the equation.

Enjoy the wonderful conceptual leaps of algebra, without getting bogged down by the tedium of traditional methods.

"With this app, the author has successfully made algebra beautiful. I really wish this app existed when I was studying algebra 25 years ago." -

Drag to rearrange, tap to simplify, and draw lines to eliminate identical terms. 

Easily switch between lessons and randomly-generated practice problems.

Create your own sets of problems to work through in the equation editor, and have them appear on all of your devices with iCloud.

Current material covers:

Simplification, Like Terms, Commutativity, Order of Operations, Factorization, Prime Numbers, Elimination, Isolation, Variables, Basic Equations, Distribution, Factoring Out, Exponent Product Rule, and Exponent Quotient Rule.

Made possible with support from the Percepts and Concepts Laboratory of Indiana University, Bloomington, and the Cave Lab at the University of Richmond.

Great app!!

the app is amazing and really helped me catch up on what i’ve forgotten on algebra but it would be more improved if the app were to explain what is wrong and right it’s more of an app where you have to find out yourself what’s wrong and decide how to fix that, maybe add more help which explains what certain things mean, at least someway to understand confusing things

Help Button

I enjoy clicking the help button and letting it do all the work, and then waiting till it is nearly done, and unclicking help, causing me to finish with no effort.
Thank you for thinking about the lazy peoples health.
Although the help button did do the problem, you should be able to speed up how fast the help button does the problem, for example - a x2 Speed for the Help Button. But anyway, thank you for the Help Button, the App itself isn’t good, but still, the Help Button.
