Hands-On Equations, Level 2 app
"This has to be the BEST app ever. If you have a child struggling with algebra or a child you would like to enrich, then this is definitely the app for you. It makes algebra 'click'!"- App Store review by Stronggirl1
In Level 2 students learn to solve equations such as 4x + star + 1 = 2x + 5 and 2x - star = 12 using the understanding that x is the opposite of star.,
Tremendous app! ★★★★★

We downloaded Hands on Equations level 1 for our eight year old daughter last week. Her eyes lit up and she proceeded to work through the exercises ("Math puzzles, Mom!) in just a few days. She actually turned down the chance to bake cookies at one point because she was having so much fun! She made clear she wanted more as soon as she had finished and began with Hands on Equations level 2 a few days ago. The instructions are clear and the sequential nature of the instruction makes it easy for her to do this on her own, which she also finds exciting. The virtual manipulatives are a wonderful tool. The kids are provided something concrete through which to understand a concept, and the tools are fun, yet without becoming more bells and whistles than functional. This is a wonderful app- without a doubt our favorite math app yet. We recommend it highly!
Hands-On Equations has changed our 9y/o's way of looking at math! ★★★★★

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for introducing this concept for teachers/students/parents. This concept has changed our daughter's outlook on math. She just started a new school 6 weeks ago and the math teacher in her 3rd grade class sent home homework for her to do on her first week and first of all we were surprised at what she was being taught in 3rd grade and secondly upon googling Hands-On Equations, she was thrilled to be able to get apps on her iPad so she could further practice and get better with her algebra. Thanks to the Hands-On Equations she no longer sees math as a drag, she now wants to show us all how the problems are solved…she even makes her own physical little makeshift version of the system with paper and markers. Thank you for sharing this with others =)
Great intro to Algebra ★★★★★

I heard about this program and thought the ideas would work. Then I found this App. It's awesome, my kids fight to do their math lessons each day. My sons are 10, 12 and I am going to have my 15yo who is struggling start this program.
