DragonBox Algebra 5+ - The game that secretly teaches algebra

DragonBox Algebra 5+ Is perfect for giving young children a head start in mathematics and algebra. Children as young as five can easily begin to grasp the basic processes involved in solving linear equations without even realising that they are learning. The game is intuitive, engaging and fun, allowing anyone to learn the basics of algebra at his or her own pace.

DragonBox Algebra 5+ covers the following algebraic concepts:

* Addition
* Division
* Multiplication

Suitable from age five and up, DragonBox Algebra 5+ gives young learners the opportunity to get familiar with the basics of equation solving.

DragonBox uses a novel pedagogical method based on discovery and experimentation. Players learn how to solve equations in a playful and colorfull game environment where they are encouraged to experiment and be creative. 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 supervision, although parents can assist them in transferring learned skills into pen and paper equation solving. It is a great game for parents to play with their kids and can even give them an opportunity to freshen up their own math skills.

DragonBox was developed by former math teacher Jean-Baptiste Huynh and has been heralded as a perfect example of game-based learning. As a result, it is currently forming the basis of an extensive research project by the Center For Game Science at the University of Washington.

Game changer! Hidden learning I swear it's just a game, like Tetris or Bejeweled. But you are secretly learning algebra. Just do it. Skip the trial since you'll have to repeat the levels when you buy the real one...and you WILL buy it. It's just that good. Bought it to brush up before my kindergartener gets to algebra, and not only is it reteaching me, it's teaching him too, and it's reframing a subject I've hated and made me become an algebra game addict. Kids week learn to love algebra way before school gets to make him hate it.

Great Edu-game Daughter (7) loves this title and asks to play it all the time. It's been a great way to relate the actual algebra from her lessons in a less intimidating way.

Super impressive game I'm extremely impressed that this game can engage my 6 yo to learn algebra. Now I have to tie that back to real life value! He even went on to play the game for 12+ kids.
