great game but no teaching i am 42 but didn't do algebra. so i completed all levels of 12+ dragon box. i still don't know what i was doing 90% of the time and have no idea how to apply it to an algebra sum on paper. :-/ great fun and i would still recommend it for kids who might be learning algebra at same time so may make more sense.
Good, but when do the training wheels come off? I like the app! Seems to get at some reasonably fear-inducing symbol-manipulation skills in a non-threatening way. The big thing that I think is missing is a way to practice without the game forcing you to only make alegbraically correct moves. For example, there is no way to accidentally add a quantity to only one side of the equation. Would love to see a more challenging mode where that is possible--that would be better proof that students are learning things deeply.
Pretty good but... EDIT: WARNING DON'T BUY IT My only complaint is that I keep finishing levels in 1 to 3 moves under the required amount, it takes the fun out of it because it feels too easy. EDIT: In chapter 10 level 7 I can easily make 1 = 0 using the powers and to me that is really really bad and with a flaw like this it will just confuse students way more than it helps. This flaw knocked 3 stars off my rating and I wish I could give 0 stars until the powers reflect real operations.
This is great I'm 28 years old. I hate computer games, but even more I hate Algebra! However, I will have to pass my Algebra class for my degree. Dragon Box was very helpful. It's actually fun. I wish all math could be like this game. Enjoy!
Genius app! Great way to teach kids the patterns and rules of algebra. To improve it even more, you could add more levels between learning new powers, and add a problem creator tool to create and solve new problems.
By far the best Due to some circumstances I had to review some math stuff for my current job. I had not any math since I left high school so I was looking for an app to review some of that. Finally I found this app which not only proved to me to be effective in reteaching stuff to myself, but also to be really fun to play, I probably already addicted now but in a good way! And my daughter really also likes it!
