"This is an excellent app for teaching the fundamentals of algebra, especially for visual learners."- bestappsforkids.com.

Algebra can be a tricky subject to master, but with the help of Hands-On Equations 1 Lite, equations like 4x+2=3x+9 become child’s play! The app takes advantage of the iPad’s and iPhone's visual and touch features to demystify complex algebraic concepts.

The original Hands-On Equations program, using physical game pieces, has already helped more than a million students gain confidence with algebra. Now that same, proven method is available virtually in the palm of your hand.

A short, helpful introductory video by Dr. Borenson, the inventor of Hands-On Equations, assures and encourages young students that algebra is fun and easy to master.

The app works like this –
•The unknown X variable is represented by a blue pawn on the digital screen while the constants by number cubes.
•In Lesson 1 the icons do not move. The student uses thinking or guess and check to solve the equations.
•Beginning with Lesson 2, the student places the game pieces on the balance scale to represent the two sides of the equation.
•Starting with Lesson 3, the student simplifies the equation by removing pawns from the balance to solve for the unknown X.
•The student verifies his/her solution by resetting the problem to conduct the check.
•Feedback is provided to the student in the check phase of the problem.
•Simple touch features are used to move the pieces around.
•An expert instructional video is included for each lesson.
•An intuitive user interface makes the app easy to use.
