    A game of logic for children

    THE VERDICT

    DragonBox Algebra is an educational math game for children which is so subtle that they won't even know they're doing math. The game is based on equations and it's very easy to learn, although pretty hard to master. Not for young kids.

    THE PROS

    The graphics are outstanding and controls are highly interactive and work perfectly smoothly. There's nothing we can complain about: the app has an amazing design altogether.

    THE CONS

    Although it's definitely original and fun, it's complicated to see that the kid is actually practising math. It's not an obvious game and it might be more of a logic game than an actual math game. That said, it's still recommended for children in order to improve their abilities.

    Description

    DragonBox Algebra 12+ is a must-have tool for students so they can earn better grades and gain confidence in algebra and mathematics. It is based on the award winning game DragonBox Algebra 5+ but covers more advanced topics in mathematics and algebra:

    * Parentheses
    * Positive and Negative signs
    * Addition of Fractions (Common Denominators)
    * Collection of Like Terms
    * Factorization
    * Substitution

    DragonBox Algebra 12+ gives players a greater understanding of what mathematics is all about: objects and the relationships between objects.

    This educational game targets children from the ages of 12 to 17 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.

    DragonBox Algebra 12+ introduces all these elements in a playful and colorful world appealing to all ages.

    The player learns at his/her own pace by experimenting 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, created DragonBox Algebra 12+ as an intuitive, interative and efficient way to learn algebra.

    DragonBox Algebra 12+ 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 12+ creates an environment for kids where they can learn, enjoy and appreciate math.

    Our previous educational game, 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.

    Features
    * 20 progressive chapters (10 learning, 10 training)
    * 357 puzzles
    * Basic algebraic rules with which the child can experiment
    * A focus on minimal instruction encourages creativity and experimentation from the player
    * Multiple profiles for easy progress control
    * Dedicated graphics and music for each chapter
    * Multiple supported languages (English, français, norsk, svenska, dansk, español, 한국어, italiano, português, Deutsch, русский, 简体中文, 繁體中文, suomi, Nederlands, Eesti, Euskara, Türkçe...)

    Wish I had this back in my day - I've learnt more doing this now with my daughter than I learned in school over that 4 or 5 years on how to rearrange equations

    I'm enrolled in computer science after being out of school for 12 years, I bombed my math placement test and was going to need to take developmental courses to get back on track. I wanted to give the placement test another shot and was looking for study aids when I came across this app, there were a lot of good reviews and I figured it was worth a try for a few bucks and I just have to say wow! This app is an amazing learning tool, it helped me understand algebra in a way I never learned in school. I spent an evening with the game, it only took a few hours to get through, I then took a random math test to re-familiarize myself with terminology and non-algebraic stuff. I took the placement test again and this time tested right into the class I need! This is an incredible app and I really can't say enough about it, I wish I had grown up at a time where tools like this were available.

    Just a fantastic way to learn algebra. Totally engaging. One note is there's very little reason for the 5+ to exist. The 12+ starts in the same place, it just has more levels.
