Algebra can be a tricky subject to master, but with the help of this free Hands-On Equations app, equations such as 4x+2=3x+9 become child’s play! 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.

• 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.
• In Lesson 3, the student simplifies the equation by performing "legal moves" with the pawns.
• 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.
