Editors' Notes

“Solve for X” might be the most terrifying words in a young student’s vocabulary, but DragonBox Algebra 5+ explains fractions, polynomials and other scary math concepts in a way that’s fun and even a bit sneaky. A game with colourful critters, glowing orbs and a magic box, it subtly educates kids (and adults in need of a brush-up) about linear equations. It’s an ingenious way of teaching algebra basics without the intimidation factor.

Middle Years Maths

A pair of experienced Maths teachers remained entranced with this unique app for nearly an hour, wondering how each concept would be introduced. Using a magic box (the unknown 'x'), various 'day' (positive) and 'night' (negative) monster cards (pro numerals) on two sides of the screen (equation), the aim is to isolate the box.

I believe this app will be a fun and engaging way to introduce simple algebra concepts to middle years Maths students. Like many games, it has some arbitrary rules, but these relate to mathematical concepts - for example, doing the same to both sides, canceling out above and below the fraction line.

I am looking forward to using this app with my students and letting them post their reviews here - watch this space!

Brilliant

Great way of stealthily teaching kids the mechanics of algebra. Highly recommended.
The only reason I can think of for the one star reviews is... some people don’t get maths.
