Apps: Dragon Box – Teach Your Child Algebra

Getting my son excited about maths has always been a bit of a challenge for me, so when I discovered DragonBox, I was over the moon. Created to play like a game, your child won’t even know he’s learning maths at the same time!

About DragonBox Algebra 5+

“It doesn’t matter if you hate maths or love it. You’ll enjoy this game. In just one hour of playing, you will master difficult algebraic equations. Impress your friends, parents or even your teacher. Or simply prove to yourself that you are smart.”

DragonBox Algebra 5+ is a game that teaches children the concepts of solving algebra equations. It has been tested in schools in France and Norway and found to increase students’ understanding of basic mathematic equations and improve their ability to solve equations. It also significantly improved their attitude towards learning maths.
