Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Begin at the starting gate with a race car. Move around the track to the finish line as you factor equations correctly. When you complete each level you earn a better race car. Ready, Get it correct, Zoooooommmm!
Factor Race is a game where the player must identify the binomial factors of trinomial equations For example, factoring x2+x-2 into (x-1)(x+2). The game uses logic to develop cognitive math skills. The touch mechanic of the game engages children in a hand-on learning process, implementing kinesthetic learning. The game incorporates mathematical problems attuned to binomial and trinomial factoring, based upon problems from textbook materials.

FOR TEACHERS AND PARENTS
The recommended grade levels are as follows:
All components of the game are developed in-house. The Virginia Standards of Learning targeted are for:
MATH - 8th grade
The student will apply the order of pertains to evaluate algebraic expressions for given replacement values of the variables.
a) Applying the laws of exponents to perform operations on expressions
b) Adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing polynomials
c) Factoring completely first and second degree binomials and trinomials in one or two variables.
The students will express the square roots and cube roots of whole numbers and the square root of a monomial algebraic expression in the simplest radical form.
a) Add, subtract, multiply, divide, and simplify rational algebraic expressions
d) factor polynomials completely
This game was partially funded with an Enhancing Education Through Technology competitive grant from the Virginia Department of Education.
Excellent App for sixth graders
I love factor race. This has been a godsend to my sixth class. The kids latch onto to the racing concept and the basic trinomial factoring. Keep up the great work. I really want a competitive mode or some way to play together via bluetooth.
I love this app! It is definitely one of the best free math apps out there. Although, I would really appreciate an update where it saves your progress.
Thank you so much for making this app, it is really helpful in a fun way.
This app was great when it was working. Now I get only half the app on my screen and when I turn it sideways it doesn't turn. I can't play it. I would love to recommend to all my students once this bug is fixed.
