Customer Reviews

Great potential with minor improvements

This application has a variety of features that would be helpful to a student beginning to learn the ideas of algebra and balancing equations. It introduces students to the idea that something other than a number can represent a number (ex: the Zogs represent different weights/numbers that must be balances). While there are benefits, the lack of instructions and direction in how to complete the activities inhibits the usefullness of this application. It was difficult to determine how to play this game due to the fact there were no instructions and there were multiple buttons that needed to be pressed inorder to be successful. With a clearer tutorial, this game has great potential. Lastly, a student is able to pass a level by merely guessing their way to the right answer. Potentially having a specific number of guesses would help alleviate this potential pitfall. All in all, this is an application that has great potential with a ffew minor modifications.
