DragonBox Algebra 12+: An inexpensive algebra tutor that fits in your pocket.

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.

* 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...)

Superb - a fantastic way to learn algebra

Paul in Ipswich

This is a superb way to learn algebra. Our 9-year old son loves this game and quickly taught himself quite advanced algebra in just 10 days.
It is a compelling game with increasingly tricky problems to master. Lower levels use icons but they soon give way to conventional mathematical formulae. The challenge is to rearrange the symbols to find a solution for the variable x (or the dragon box). The dragon wants nothing else on its side of the equals sign and eats what's on the other side (or complains it's Yuk if if could have been simplified further).
Our son knows he is learning algebra and completely understands the details while at the same time enjoying a compelling and rewarding game.
This App deserves a much higher profile and should be mandatory for all primary and/or secondary school children.
Stunning - can't recommend highly enough!

The best app ever!!!


My two boys when age 8 and 10 have learnt how to do algebra! It's so easy. You just leave your child to play on this app and it gradually teaches your child the steps for algebra. My older son completed the 5plus and 12plus app then went on to do algebra on paper. He saw it a fun because doing it on this app is fun. My youngest loves doing this app. He goes over and over again doing the algebra on this app starting from the beginning. If he gets stuck it shows you how to work it out. The app encourages the children to experiment with different options until they find the right answer. This app is a must for helping your child to love maths!!!!!!!!!



My seven year old finished the first app in about two hours and is now half way through this one and loving it. I am really impressed with how it teaches the algebra concepts and by the end uses proper algebraic terms. I have had to help a little bit with converting her new knowledge to a written format on paper but the techniques are now ingrained in her mind so it makes it easy. I would recommend this to any student learning maths, particularly GCSE.
