# Description

Teach your children the joys of learning algebra with Hands-On Equations 1 Lite – the fun, FREE algebra app for children as young as eight! With an intuitive visual interface, Hands-On Equations has proven itself to be the best algebra app for kids on the market. And now it is available for the Android app and phone.

“Hands-On Equations - Level 1 Lite is perfect for introducing algebra to students..” - www.educationworld.com

Algebra can be a tricky subject to master but with the help of Hands-On Equations 1 Lite, equations such as 4x+2=3x+9 become child’s play! In three easy lessons the young student obtains a feeling of success and a sense of mathematical power in solving sophisticated looking equations.

The original Hands-On Equations program, using physical game pieces, has already helped more than a million students gain confidence with algebra. Now that same, proven method is available virtually in the palm of your hand__ for FREE!

A short, helpful introductory video by Dr. Borenson, the inventor of Hands-On Equations, assures and encourages young students that algebra is fun and easy to master.

This FREE app gives students a taste of the same in-depth algebraic experience they will have with the paid version of Hands-On Equations 1.

This is how the App works:-

•The unknown X is represented by a blue pawn on the Android screen while the constants are represented 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.

•Beginning with Lesson 3, the student simplifies the equation by removing pawns from the balance to solve for the unknown X.

•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 expert instructional video is included for each lesson.

•An intuitive user interface makes the app easy to use.

Hands-On Equations 1 Lite is perfect for introducing algebra to kids (or adults) in an entertaining and fun way. The app will boost their self-esteem and give them the confidence to take on even more complicated equations! Download this FREE app today and see how much fun and how easy algebra can be!

It was actually fun I don't usually review anything but I felt like I needed to express how much I actually enjoyed using this app. I'm terrified of mathematics and once I practiced with this it really opened up a whole new world for me and made me feel so comfortable with algebra. I went ahead and bought the app because nobody will help teach you math for $3 like this app does. To the gentleman that made this app, thank you. It has helped me more than you know! 😁

The Truly funnest way to learn Algebra My son was having a lot of trouble.with math, and was starting to fall behind in algebra. Once he got this app, he loved it. He is always eager to learn math. Now he is steadily getting better at algebra thanks to this app. I HIGHLY suggest you download this app if your child doesn't like math and/or is rusty at it.

First lesson was good, but the second video told me to place the pawns on the balance to create a physical representation of the sample equation. Unfortunately, the pawns wouldn't go on the balance no matter what I tried. It's too bad that functionality doesn't work, it makes it much easier to use if I can see the equation.

Great app This app taught me in 5 minutes what I couldn't never understand in algebra 1 Wow. Saved money on a tutor also. I recommend this app to anyone wanting to learn algebra. It's hard for me to use abstract equations making it physical just clarified everything in just 3 lessons

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING-DONT PASS THIS ONE UP! Algebra is fun with this app, I Dont mind at all paying for the full version. No one has ever shown methods to me like this before. My 9 yr old was competing with me to do the problems.

Couple issues 2x+2=x+8. So X=6 with 14/14 value. Even with the checker confirming that the solution is correct, it still says the value is not... Even though it is. This is not the first iteration of this issue I've come across. Aside from that. It's well put together.

User reviews

was it so simple? I could not belive that algebra was so simple. Years of torture trying to learn it then hey-presto, I have cracked it. Enjoyed it so much I could not put it down, It's 4 in the morning as I type. Thank you so much. Will there be a follow up for more complicated equations (just downloaded no 2). Any other programs in the pipeline for learning ie triganomitary, which over time I have forgotten.

Brilliant I was terrible at math, I never learned algebra or any math after that. This app helped me understand immediately and im now more confident about going back to school and starting college. My fear of math made me hesitant to do so. Youre amazing, thank you so much. Download this app!

How can Anyone Learn This way? This is the most embarrassing presntation of math I have ever played. The fundamental mechanics of the game are terribly suited to young children unless their parents are present guiding their every movement. This is because the gameplay is dull, and winning has gives no payoff whatsoever to the player. How could anyone enjoy playing a game this pedantic? For something to teach you its payoff must be greater than its cost.

Thank you: Developer please read this**** Im 27 with an intense passion n understanding for engineering but i cant go to school for it becausd i never ever understood algebra. My 7th grade math teacher Mr. Sites used this same process to teach us but he throughly confused me with it n i never gave it another time of day. Until now... so yes thank you!! And if at all possible please come out with a way for us math idiots to be able to understand algebra 1-trig... i really want to go to collage for engineering!

Great relearning tool .Thank Great way to relearn math skills that I never really fully remembered or enforced to learn until now, though once I learn the skill I'm good at teaching it to others. This is a great program tool to teach students too, especially those who are like myself struggle with dyscalculus. Made me and my students love math.

Very good for refreshing your brain. Recently enrolled back to school and my first day back doing math problem, I was really lost and confused considering its been 10 years since I graduated. Thought I lost it all but this seriously refreshed my memory. Thank you.

Different Way of Approaching Algebra I can honestly say that I've never seen this concept of algebra before. It's refreshing to learn from a different approach rather than being told the same thing over and over.

Algebra fun It gave me a problem and I responded with the correct answer to the equation and it said I was wrong. I went and had an engineer do the same problem and he came up with the same answer I did.

Katelyn, can you be more specific? Which problem and which device are you using? Thanks. Great app This app is really very useful. It has helped me remember how to use my math skills. This helps me feel more secure in my learning ability the only thing I would change would be a I'm stumped show me the next step button. Otherwise I recommend this 100%

OMG this guy has the worst voice ever. Everytime he talks you hear nothing but spit moving around in his mouth. I can't stand those people

Very disappointed I can't get past lesson three because the stupid answer wheel doesn't go any higher than 39!

I feel like an idiot. I had to take beginning algebra 2x and I still did not get this. My teacher felt so sorry for me that he passed me anyway. I feel so stupid now that I see how simple it is to do. This app rocks.

Really? I've had a literal math phobia all of my life. I'm 52 and I'm partially amazed and partially sickened. Amazed I'm doing algebra and enjoying it... sickened that I wasn't taught this in school!

Wonderful Almost in tears from my joy in realizing I'm not math illiterate. I'm going back to college to pursue my dreams after 20 years of feeling like a failure because I never understood algebra! Thank you!

Awesome!!! This app is great! Good way to refresh your memory after years off high school lol. I've learned sooooo much just in 1hr of playing... Addicted.

Really great Used this app and figured out that i was solving my problems the opposite way of what i was suppose to be. Once i used this app i realized my wrong and it helped me score better on my placement test for college

I went to high school and didn't understand how to do any of this and I completed this app in 30 minutes the teaching set up is perfect if you are one that needs to learn how to use math instead of writing it on a piece of paper.

Great 4 Learning!!! I was rusty at 1st, but it all started come back to me once I kept playing. I'll rate this app 1x = 5⭐

Fast and easy way to learn! I could never understand in high school either..I never was good in my math class and this app helps a lot. Where was this teacher when I went to school?

Great Tool This app is very helpful. My only suggestion would be, prior to giving the lessons, allow each person to complete a pretest to assess their knowledge base. This would prevent any "previously known" information from the lessons.

Very good math app! I suck at math. I am trying to get my GED and failed the math segment by 3 points. I needed something very explanatory to help me. This app is great!

Awesome Algebra Sooo easy to use and understand. If I had been taught this way in school, I would have went to college. I'm enjoying learning math for the first time in my life.

I have Dyscalculia and was hoping this would help me. It didn't. I couldn't even get the first answer on the first problem correct, despite watching the instructional video several times. Obviously I am not uneducated, I've just struggled in math all my life.

This is an amazing app. It makes learning algebra so Flipping easy!! Im starting school in Sept and needed to brush up on my algebra. And this has helped so much! Please please PLEASE do yourself a favor and download this app if you want to get better at algebra. There is absolutely no way you can not understand it after doing these lessons. I cannot solve them any other way now. Great job and THANK YOU for this incredible app.

This app opened my eyes to a love of mathematics that I thought impossible!!! The explanations in this app make math easier than I can remember. Equations that sent my brain running are like candy now!!

Very helpful I'm studying for the Asvab and this app is really helping me with my algebra. It helps break down the problems to help you understand

Absolutely amazing I had a crappy teacher in high school so i never got to really learn algebra but this app has taught me how simple it really is! And i hate math so if i can do it anyone can

Man... I've always SUCKED at math. always. I barely passes algebra in hs with a D and I cheated to get that. But this app makes it soooo soooooo easy to learn and fun to boot.

Love this app! The explanation is so simple and straight to the point. I would still compare how algebra was taught in school but this is another way of solving problems in a fun way. It turned out to be really easy.

No math class jargon Not a perfect method, but a refreshing, new technique to viewing math. Effective exercises make concepts less abstract. The lesson videos are hosted by an effective communicator. He verbalizes each step so the student never gets lost in the process.

Best app for learning algebra! I was sceptical about this app at first and have truly never really understood algebra. Well I now know algebra thanks to this app. Love the app. Must try if algebra was never your thing.

Fantastic fun! I can't even describe how difficult any part of math is for me and this app has helped me learn it quicker than I have ever been able too. Thank you now I have some hope that I'm able to go for my goals!!!

Works great even if just to knock the dust out and get the old gears spinning again. Really easy concept to grasp. Really simplified things.

Marley Meyston Liked the app! It gives the concept and It's really ideal for mental and physical well being in solving Algebraic problems.
