DragonBox Elements: the game that secretly teaches geometry.
Embark on a great learning adventure! Discover the fundamentals of geometry with your family! Watch your kids learn geometry in a matter of hours, without them even noticing they’re learning! (main learning features below)
By playing the 100+ puzzles in DragonBox Elements, kids (and adults, too) will gain a deep understanding of the logic of geometry. Through entertaining exploration and discovery, players use shapes and their properties to actually recreate the mathematical proofs that define geometry!
Whimsical characters and captivating puzzles motivate players to keep learning. Since the geometry in the game remains hidden, kids learn and gain confidence even if mathematics is a subject they don’t usually feel comfortable with. Amazing fun with amazing results!
DragonBox Elements takes its inspiration from “Elements”, one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics. Written by the Greek mathematician Euclid, "Elements" describes the foundations of geometry using a singular and coherent framework. Its 13 volumes have served as a reference textbook for over 23 centuries, and DragonBox Elements makes it possible for players to master its essential axioms and theorems after just a couple of hours playing!
* Learn as a family, through guidance and collaborative play, with up to 4 individual game saves
* 100+ levels, for several hours of intensive logical reasoning practice
* Aligned with the concepts studied in high school and middle school mathematics
* Explore the properties of geometric shapes through Euclidian proof: triangles (scalene, isosceles, equilateral, right), circles, quadrilaterals (trapezoid, parallelogram, rhombus, rectangle, square), right angles, line segments, parallel and transversal lines, vertical angles, corresponding angles, corresponding angles converse, and more
* Improve logical reasoning skills dramatically by creating mathematical proofs and solving geometrical puzzles
* Gain an instinctive understanding of the properties of shapes and angles through play
* Transfer what you have learned to pen and paper with the learning resources found on wewanttoknow.com
Recommended from age 8 (the guidance of an adult may be required for younger children)
This small release improves the quality of our product by making sure that kids aren't exposed to ads. They shouldn't be! The "More games" button on the title screen is now only accessible to parents. This also brings some various fixes and improvements in the translations.

Ratings and Reviews
The latest update is fantastic, adding more depth to the 'game'. My comments from my previous review still stand though...
I loved DragonBox Algebra and was pleased when I found that geometry had been tackled in a similar way. It didn't take me too long to work through the levels, but there is plenty to engage & stimulate my handful of students. This leads me to the only downside so far - there are only 4 profile slots! I guess for most people this would not be a problem, but I have 7 students & 1 iPad. I have to decide between my students to allocate slots and I would like to have one for myself. This problem is also shared with DragonBox Algebra. I would even be prepared to pay to add extra profile slots! More slots = more stars.
Can't wait to see what they do next though.
Very poor interface design
Does not explain, at any point, which task the player is expected to solve from the multiple possibilities. And there is no method to remove "first guesses". It should not be necessary to guess. Solutions should be deductible from the initial information. Frustratingly poor teaching methodology. Children will probably enjoy randomly clicking until a "problem" is "solved". As a fellow teacher, I find it infuriating that a colleague could allow such poor pedagogical method to be released. Make the learning objective clear. Make it clear what the learning pathway needs to be. Trial and error is not a sustainable long term strategy for problem solving.
Challenging but brilliant
Yes, it's fairly complicated for an adult, but my 6 year old seems to have mastered it and can complete all levels on the hardest setting. He's shown me how to complete the harder ones and the game teaches logical thinking for deriving geometric relationships.
