Have you forgotten most of your algebra? Algebra Touch will refresh your skills using touch-based techniques built from the ground up for your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch.

Say you have x + 3 = 5. You can drag the 3 to the other side of the equation.

Enjoy the wonderful conceptual leaps of algebra, without getting bogged down by the tedium of traditional methods.

"With this app, the author has successfully made algebra beautiful. I really wish this app existed when I was studying algebra 25 years ago." -

Drag to rearrange, tap to simplify, and draw lines to eliminate identical terms. 

Easily switch between lessons and randomly-generated practice problems.

Create your own sets of problems to work through in the equation editor, and have them appear on all of your devices with iCloud.

Current material covers:

Simplification, Like Terms, Commutativity, Order of Operations, Factorization, Prime Numbers, Elimination, Isolation, Variables, Basic Equations, Distribution, Factoring Out, Exponent Product Rule, and Exponent Quotient Rule.

Made possible with support from the Percepts and Concepts Laboratory of Indiana University, Bloomington, and the Cave Lab at the University of Richmond.

Editors’ Notes

An intuitive interface and well-paced lesson plan make this app a fantastic alternative to traditional pencil-and-paper math. Sliding factors from one side of an equation to another will keep students actively engaged in each problem, and because it’s impossible to break the rules of algebra, they can freely experiment until they find a solution. Plus, a handy build-your-own-equation tool lets students tackle assigned problems—or create clever ones for classmates to solve.

Actually fun!


This app needs to be balanced with an actual pencil and paper by the part of the user. It is awesome for instilling a sense of understanding. However, the app won't let you actually fail. Failure is important to probe ones understanding. I wish there was more. I'm a 40 something that has a 5 year old. I sucked at math and recall there being no one at home that could help or even instill enthusiasm. I don't want to perpetuate that cycle with my kid. I love this app for getting me motivated toward understanding and enthusiasm toward the language of mathematics. 4 stars only because I want more.

Great app only score of 81 accuplacer


What I’ve done to learn algebra is I write out the problem on paper and then solve it on paper and then use the app to check my work. I received my ged in nov 2007, took the axcuplacer and scored a 39, downloaded this app played around for 3 days here and there bout 8 hours total and scored a 81 on the accuplacer, so all in all pretty good app. Kept me entertained. Totally worth the 3 bucks!
