sucks.!poor..! wrong answers the questions are right....but not the answers those are most defiantly wrong....hence..... -3+(-4)=-7 and this app will tell you its positive 7 when its not so this is not a good learning app....id give it a 1/2 star but it don't even know what that is very poor mathematics

Crista Matt

Doesn't show the correct answer When a section is done it will give you your test score, but it does not go back and show you which was the correct answer. How can you learn if you don't know which one you got wrong?

A Google User

Truly Painless Series was downloaded as a review aid shortly before school started for one child. All three took the challenge and earned their fun. Now if only there was an application to get them to clean their rooms.

Good app Good app, but itbwould be uelpful to see what questions Were answered incorrectly

A Google User

Wrong answer Confusing kids who are just learning this stuff is a bad idea. Example: 9÷(-3(4+6))-8 This was one problem this asked me but the correct answer was not listed.

“It’s like a private school math classroom, but you are the only student.”

John

"I just love YourTeacher and the way you explain things. I felt like I was in a classroom instead of just looking at examples."

Diane

“Prior to using your Pre-Algebra program, my daughter had 6 test grades of 45-56. Once she was on the program, she had 4 test grades of 85-100. My 13 year old student actually sits down with the program on her own and completes the work with out me nagging her to do it. She does not have to be driven to another location, she is not losing school time to attend tutoring, nor am I losing time from work. I know the work she does is correct. I'm not praying that the tutor knows what he/she is doing. AND YOU CAN NOT BEAT THE EXCELLENT PRICE. This program works and is such a blessing. Thank you very, very much for this program."

## DragonBox Algebra 5+

DragonBox Algebra 5+ - The game that secretly teaches algebra

DragonBox Algebra 5+ Is perfect for giving young children a head start in mathematics and algebra. Children as young as five can easily begin to grasp the basic processes involved in solving linear equations without even realising that they are learning. The game is intuitive, engaging and fun, allowing anyone to learn the basics of algebra at his or her own pace.

DragonBox Algebra 5+ covers the following algebraic concepts:

* Addition

* Division

* Multiplication

Suitable from age five and up, DragonBox Algebra 5+ gives young learners the opportunity to get familiar with the basics of equation solving.

DragonBox uses a novel pedagogical method based on discovery and experimentation. Players learn how to solve equations in a playful and colorfull game environment where they are encouraged to experiment and be creative. By manipulating cards and trying to isolate the DragonBox on one side of the game board, the player gradually learns the operations required to isolate X on one side of an equation. Little by little, the cards are replaced with numbers and variables, revealing the addition, division and multiplication operators the player has been learning throughout the game.

Playing does not require supervision, although parents can assist them in transferring learned skills into pen and paper equation solving. It is a great game for parents to play with their kids and can even give them an opportunity to freshen up their own math skills.

DragonBox was developed by former math teacher Jean-Baptiste Huynh and has been heralded as a perfect example of game-based learning. As a result, it is currently forming the basis of an extensive research project by the Center For Game Science at the University of Washington.

Features

* 10 progressive chapters (5 learning, 5 training)

* 200 puzzles

* Learn to solve equations involving addition, subtraction, division and multiplication

* Multiple profiles

* Dedicated graphics and music for each chapter

* supported languages: English, français, norsk, svenska, dansk, español, 한국어, italiano, português, Deutsch, русский, 简体中文, 繁體中文, suomi, Nederlands, Eesti, Euskara, Türkçe, Čeština, Lietuvių, Magyar, 日本語...

This is for students in High School/College learning algebra. If you are a beginner in algebra you might be thinking X+Y=XY, Is not it? But it’s not.

The beauty of algebra is, it deals with variables, expressions & equations. You will come to know various formulas.

For example if you know (a+b)^3= a^3+b^3+3a^2b+3ab^2.

You can calculate any number to the powers 2,3,4…in a fraction of seconds.

In the above equation a ,b are variables. So you can calculate (1.034)^3 also using that formula. Just feed a=1& b=.034

IMathPractice Algebra's 3 steps method of teaching has sections like Tutorial, Practice Skills, Practice Test & Algebra Challenge. Under tutorial it teaches you.
