A Free Interactive iPad App To Teach Algebra - Edudemic

A Free Interactive iPad App To Teach Algebra - Edudemic | The Fun Way to Learn Algebra | Scoop.it
For many students algebra seems too abstract and hard to learn. They often resort to ineffective memorization and in the long run find only frustration and failure.
Henry Borenson's insight:

This article describes the first three lessons of the free iPad app, The Fun Way to Learn Algebra, intended for anyone age 8 and up. The app is interactive not only in that the user may move the game pieces to solve the equation (begining with Lesson 3) but also in that the app provides feedback to the user. If the user has made an error in arithmetic, he/she will be asked to redo the check. If the user is not doing the check in the original equation or original setup, he/she will be asked to reset the problem and then try the check again.
