Equation Creations invites children of all ages to explore the fun side of math equations. In one section, math is used to draw beautiful spirals. By changing the variables in the equation, a variety of intricate patterns are formed. In another, math equations are used to animate characters and objects at the park, at a concert, and on a distant planet. While the math behind drawing and animation is advanced, no math skills are needed to enjoy this app. Everyone can play with the variables in the equations and see the results. The goal of Equation Creations is to show that math has a playful side. If you're only solving equations, you're missing half the fun!
Intended for kids. Equation Creations is NOT designed to be a drawing or animation tool.
Fun but not for the classroom
This application is fun and interactive with the different designs that can be created and manipulating the different controls. But, overall, I would not recommend this app for a classroom. The instructional page is very cluttered with different visuals and colors which can be confusing for students. Also, when creating the different designs and controlling the different parts of the activities, the activities do not explain how these manipulations relate to the sine and cosine equations. With some adjustments, this app would be helpful for students.
