Ages of learners

Now everyone can learn difficult math and have fun solving algebra equations after just one hour of playing.

Many children today struggle with mathematics while other children want greater challenges. DragonBox is a revolutionary game that will make your child enjoy learning mathematics while progressing at his or her own pace.

Our intention has been to create a game that children experience as a real game that is actually fun, but where they after one hour of playing, they will be able to solve mathematic equations that they never thought they would be able to solve so quickly before.

The DragonBox game has been tested in schools in France and in Norway, and the results clearly demonstrate increased understanding of basic mathematics and the improved ability to solve equations. More importantly, it shows a significant positive change in children´s attitude towards learning mathematics.

DragonBox is taking Game Based Learning to a new level and will contribute to demystifying algebra in such a way that children at all levels will start to enjoy and embrace learning mathematics.

It is a great game for parents to play along with their kids – and freshen up their own math skills.

DragonBox+ contains an additional 100 standard equations to help your child become a real master of algebra.

The iPhone and iPad versions are offered in English, French, Norwegian, Spanish and Swedish. The Android version is offered in English, French and Norwegian.

Really great game, you can easily learn basics of algebra. However it's very expensive.

The iPad app costs $9.99. I wouldn't pay that amount of money for one app unless it was exceptional, and no other app would meet the needs of a class of students.

Today I want to write about something very near and dear to my heart, Mastery Learning. For those who are unfamiliar with Mastery Learning, it is a term that was coined by Benjamin Bloom (yes, that Benjamin Bloom) in 1968 and 1971. So it’s been around a while. Mastery Learning is based in the philosophy that every child can learn, given the appropriate learning conditions. It describes a process whereby each child must master a given learning unit before continuing...

I have tested this application. I really like the way it progresses from the game itself to equation solving with letters and numbers. I finished all levels within 2 hours, but I assume students will take much longer.

I hope there will be more levels included into this game soon, as that would make it more useful.
