Description

Hands on, super visual, algebra activities to give you a fresh perspective on math.

"I'm 48. I've wanted to learn Algebra my whole life. Tried all kinds of books, to no avail. Your app works for me. I'm so excited. A whole new world opens up." - Sally G

Algebra Touch is a supplemental learning aid that gives you the power to play with algebra directly... and we make it impossible to make mistakes.

Poke around freely. Did it react how you thought it would? No? Well then, time to update your internal model of understanding and try again. That's how people learn.

“Seriously awesome app. I am a professional math and physics instructor for middle schoolers thru college students and adults. Have used your app with a number of my students .... And it was like magic. The visual and kinesthetic approach to "moving math" is so powerful!”

* Custom manipulative for each algebra topic
* Randomly generated practice problems - as many as you could want!
* Challenge mode at the end of each module to really test your understanding
* Instructional videos for more in-depth explanations
* Create your own problems to tinker and push the limit

Algebra Touch is highly visual and interactive, so the best way to see what it's about is to try it.

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

If you need help with algebra, look no further!

Wow! Best math game I have EVER found! I never understood algebra and felt embarrassed that I didn’t know, but now I am starting to feel so confident! All thanks to this game. Thank you!! They show you all the steps in comprehensible bite sized pieces and work you up! It has a feature (brilliant by the way, guys!) so that you cannot make a “wrong” move. You will always get the correct answer - even if, like me, you make it more complicated for yourself getting there - and that is soo encouraging!!! Also, there’s no pressure to this game. They do have a mini challenge (which IS timed) at the end of every lesson chunk, but even that never lets you fail! :) If you don’t get the answer in time there’s no punishment, no shaming, it just gives you another problem (and another and another) until you get it right! So if you’re like me and seriously panic when you’re timed, this design allows you the time to realize that hey just cause you’re not perfect at it right away, they’re not gonna fail you. It teaches you to calm yourself down look ahead to solving the problem with confidence, focus, and peace.
I really could not recommend it more! Thank you to whoever helped create this game.
(It made my day!)

For brushing up; for starting out.

Super helpful for me who is looking back on some earlier learned algebra concepts, but I imagine it would be useful for those trying to ease themselves into algebra as well. Algebra Touch doesn't go that deep into concepts and the explanations are extremely brief, making it great for those who already know the concepts and those who just want to look around before actually learning algebra.

The only cons so far is that there are few concepts you can learn currently, and there's no option to practice everything you have learned.

Falls short, sadly

The pre-generated problems work GREAT. Really excellent way to teach algebra in a way that is AMAZINGLY fast. However, entering your own problems is practically useless. The app will randomly drop large sections of the equation. For example, try to factor: x^2 - 5x - 14 There’s no way to enter exponents in the calculator keyboard, so you have to do x*x to get x^2. While trying this problem, I’ve seen the app randomly erase everything except for x^2, which may lead one to think the other terms had somehow magically canceled out. It just makes me really sad that the self-entry mode is so useless. Another example: it doesn’t know how to convert 7x*x into 7x^2. This is probably the best algebra teaching method I’ve ever seen, and also works great for refreshing your memory if you’ve forgotten your algebra rules, but otherwise it’s only useful once you’ve finished all the lessons, which anybody can do inside of an hour or two.
