## Shuttle Mission Math - An Algebra App to Support Visual Learners

Shuttle Mission Math App is well-designed with visual representation for solving algebraic problems.  Here is what makes this a great app:

> Shuttle Mission Math introduces students to the fundamentals of algebraic thinking. The goal at each of the 24 levels is to find the weight of the Zogs.

> Students are given the weight of groups of Zogs. The challenge is to find their individual weights.

> To accomplish this, students must apply ideas such as equality, proportional reasoning, variables, and combining groups of objects.

> Each puzzle is a visual representation of one or more algebra problems.

> Many of the puzzles can be solved in more than one way. Students can explore various problem solving approaches without consequence.

> For students 10+
