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.

Phenomenal way to teach algebra Exceptional way for children to outperform their grade level. My fourth grader has mastered this game and the top levels feature concepts I learned when I was in high school.

Good game but needs some updating I hate that if your stuck on a level you dont offer any help to solve the problem or at least offer hints so the user can move to the next chapter pls change this!

Good But hard to understand, needs app help function/instructions for when you get stuck in the higher levels as not really understanding what we are doing... redone levels trying to see what we might have missed just can't get passed the last 3 levels to clock the game... sorry just some if us fail to understand and was hoping this was going to teach I think it more of a review for what you might already be learning at school. Fun game but I find algebra fun beter for understanding it gives step by step guide.
