About this game

Kahoot! Algebra by DragonBox - The game that secretly teaches algebra

Kahoot! Algebra by DragonBox, an app inluded in a Kahoot!+ Family subscription, is perfect for giving young learners a head start in math and algebra. Children as young as five can begin to grasp basic processes involved in solving linear equations in an easy and fun way, without even realizing that they are learning. The game is intuitive, engaging and fun, allowing anyone to learn the basics of algebra at their own pace.

**REQUIRES A SUBSCRIPTION**
Access to the content and functionality of this app requires a subscription to Kahoot!+ Family. The subscription starts with a 7-day free trial and can be cancelled at any time before the end of the trial.


The Kahoot!+ Family subscription gives your family access to premium Kahoot! features and several award-winning learning apps for children to explore math and learn to read.


HOW THE GAME WORKS
Kahoot! Algebra by DragonBox covers the following algebraic concepts:
* Addition
* Division
* Multiplication

Recommended for age five and up, Kahoot! Algebra by DragonBox gives young learners the opportunity to get familiar with the basics of equation solving.

Kahoot! Algebra by DragonBox uses a novel pedagogical method based on discovery and experimentation. Players learn how to solve equations in a playful and colorful game environment where they are encouraged to experiment and use creative skills. 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 any supervision, although parents can assist children in transferring acquired skills into solving equations on paper. It is a great game for parents to play with their kids and can also give them an opportunity to freshen up their own math skills.

DragonBox was developed by former math teacher Jean-Baptiste Huynh and has been recognized as an outstanding example of game-based learning. As a result, DragonBox games have formed 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
* Dedicated graphics and music for each chapter

I love the app and I would've given it 5 stars but I downloaded this app on 2 different devices; even though I was logged into both devices, my children's progress wasn't saved so all of the levels my son passed on his brother's tablet didn't show and he had to start all the way from the beginning when I downloaded the app on his device. He's really sad about that and may not want to play any longer. There should be a way that the progress saved so that any device you log in from will be there.

I actually love our big box numbers app & was looking to purchase some others. But after being forced into a subscription just to try the apps & then not being able to access any of the apps in the subscription due to some kind of glitch I can't fix & not able to reset password due to yet another glitch. I am out the 16 dollars I could have spent buying an app & have wasted a ton of time I don't have trying to access my paid subscription. So I am now super annoyed & hate the whole bloody thing

For some reason you have to purchase this game within the free app. I made this in app purchase and got the game, but now it is asking me to buy it again in the app and I can't access it. Why is the game an in app purchase within itself? It's a shame because the previous dragon box stuff was pretty good.
