DragonBox Algebra 5+

DragonBox Algebra 5+ - The educational app that secretly teaches young kids the basics of algebra. It’s perfect for giving your child a head start in mathematics and algebra. Children as young as 4 have solved equations meant for a 12 year old! USA Today: "brilliant, kids don't even know that they are doing math" Forbes: "Step aside sudoku, algebra is the primordial puzzle game. My son jumped right into the game. About an hour and a half later he was solving junior high level algebraic equations. Amazing." DragonBox Algebra 5+ introduces fundamental topics in mathematics with an emphasis on algebra in a playful and colorful environment. Topics covered include: * Understanding the equals sign * Isolating variables * Manipulating basic equations using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division DragonBox Algebra 5+ targets children from the ages of 5 to 12 but children (or adults) of all ages can enjoy it. Playing doesn’t require supervision, although parents can enjoy playing along with their children and maybe even freshen up their own math skills. In DragonBox Algebra 5+ the player learns at his/her own pace and experiments with rules that are introduced gradually. Progress is illustrated with the birth and growth of a dragon for each new chapter. Dr. Patrick Marchal, Ph.D. in cognitive science, and Jean-Baptiste Huynh, a high school teacher, developed DragonBox Algebra 5+ as an intuitive, interactive and efficient way to learn algebra. DragonBox Algebra 5+ is based on a novel pedagogical method developed in Norway that focuses on discovery and experimentation. Players receive instant feedback which differs from the traditional classroom setting where students can wait weeks for feedback. DragonBox Algebra 5+ creates an environment for kids where they can learn, enjoy and appreciate math. DragonBox Algebra 5+ is recommended by the Center for Game Science at the University of Washington, a leading research institute in the field of educational games. DragonBox Algebra 5+ has received many distinctions including the Gold Medal of the 2012 Serious Play Award (USA), the Best Serious game at Bilbao´s Fun and Serious Game Festival and the Best Serious Game at the 2013 International Mobile Gaming Awards. It is also recommended by Common Sense Media where it won the Learn ON award. Wired: "DragonBox is making me reconsider all the times I’ve called an educational app innovative."

My 6 and 8 year olds loved it, and want more levels. Who knew you could make learning math so fun. Their teachers were blown away when I showed them the game.

Thank you for such an opened game, that makes mathematics fun!) My daughter dislikes math, thanks to you it makes the steps less painfully arduous for both of us. And yes, I thoroughly enjoy playing too

A great emphasis on the puzzle aspect of algebra. The game does a great job of easing players into it. I'd like to see more difficulty levels as well as a mode that could generate and endless number of puzzles for a given difficulty for an increase in replayability.

It is amazing how this game teacher equation solving by introducing simple rules one by one. I wish there was atrial version. Without that I had to take risk but I did not regret a penny.

It is a great game! It teaches algebra concepts and the kids don't even notice (at least not until they have already learned a bunch)! The interface is intuitive and responsive. I am very impressed with the concept of this game. I wish I had this when I was in Jr. high! The game is no longer broken when you finish the 4th level! Now you can complete all 5 levels and continue from the beginning with higher difficulty (building on what was learned the first time through). THANX FOR FIXXING!

Updated to 5 Stars! (i.e. they fixed the "crash at the end of chapter 4 issue) FABULOUS app! Within an hour my 8 year old son was through chapter 2 and doing very well with the logic problems. My kids really liked the way it uses shapes to get across the ideas of algebra and then slowly moves toward numbers and letters.

Bought the full version. The quality of the learning is great. Can't get to the 5th (last) level. Wish there was a way to request support from within the app. Seems like it needs to mature.

I love the game and the way it teaches a child without them realizing they're learning Algebra, but the program glitches at the end of Chapter 4. It also won't remember where you stopped if you decide to come back later, but this only happens in Chapter 4. This glitches occurs with both the Surface Pro and Surface RT.

My kids loved this program! If the future of learning is anything like this, then I'm going to have a lot of fun introducing my kids to math and science. Maybe someday they'll make a calculus program?

I love the thought process taught in this game, but it crashes at the end of chapter 4. Deleted game and reinstalled. Same result. I paid a lot for this game. Hope it can get fixed soon.
