About this app

Teach your children the joys of learning algebra with Hands-On Equations 1 – the algebra app for children as young as eight and for adults of all ages!

Algebra can be a tricky subject to master, but with the help of the Hands-On Equations 1 app, equations such as 4x+2=3x+9 and 2(3x+1) = 2x + 14 become child’s play! The original Hands-On Equations program, using physical game pieces, has already helped more than a million young students in the United States gain confidence with algebra. Now that same, proven method is available virtually in the palm of your hand.

The app works like this –
• An expert instructional video introduces each lesson. It is essential to watch this video!
• Success with the two practice problems enables the app user to access the ten lesson exercises.
•The unknown x variable is represented by a blue pawn on the digital screen while the constants by number cubes.
•In Lesson 1 the icons do not move. The student uses thinking or "guess and check" to solve the equations.
•Beginning with Lesson 2, the student places the game pieces on the balance scale to represent the two sides of the equation.
•Starting with Lesson 3, the student simplifies the equations by performing "legal moves" with the pawn, and beginning with Lesson 4, legal moves with the cubes.
•The student verifies his/her solution by resetting the problem to conduct the check.
•Feedback is provided to the student in the check phase of the problem.
•Simple touch features are used to move the pieces around.
•An intuitive and attractive user interface makes the app easy to use.
• More than 80 equations to solve!
•Supports multiple users while keeping track of the problems solved by each user

Hands-On Equations is the ideal first introduction to algebra for elementary and middle school students. Not only will these students have FUN and be fascinated with the program, their sense of self-esteem will be dramatically enhanced as they experience success with sophisticated looking algebraic equations.
Older students who need help with algebra will also benefit from Hands-On Equations. These students may, for the first time, understand key concepts of algebra that have held them back.

Wonderful way to learn. Homeschooling mom to a young teen with autism. He picked right up on the visual way to leaning. We started with the free download, which only goes through 3 lessons. This is great to get started. I thought the full download would give more challenging problems or even move on to the next step. Totally disappointed it is only more of the same lessons along with review. Glad to only pay the small amount. High-in-sight. Should've gone on to the next level.

You had two new lessons in this app, namely, examples such as 4+3x-2x+x = x + 5 as well as 2(2x+1)=3x+8; all together, 40 additional examples.

I have always been able to do math in my head. It has been 15 years since I have done actual mathematical equations. I had to take an aptitude test for a career opportunity which required me to do algebraic equations in to which I was having a hard time remembering. This is an absolute wonderful way to help refresh your brain on the order of how the equations are to be done and also a fun time while learning. More fun than any game app I have ever played and worth every penny.

Math is so much fun because I'm all about numbers here. I like them because it seems really cool about learning how to work with them and go as high as you could go and see if you have the right amount of things to show by using numbers. I like to collect and work with numbers so I could see signs speed limits and scores that I could do something with. Counting money is also my thing because I like to help out with budgeting and see if we did well and have enough of cash to get things we needed♡
