Algebra can be a source of considerable confusion and negative attitudes among students. Nothing strikes fear more than algebra and teachers nowadays turn lessons into games and challenges just to spark interest. But Dr. Henry Borenson made algebra a child’s play with the ‘Hands-On Equations’ approach. The method has transferred to the digital age and is available on both iOS and Android devices and we have to say that it is a very useful app for both teachers and students. We highly recommended it and the app receives a 5 star EAS rating.
From the Developer

With an intuitive visual interface, Hands-On Equations has proven itself to be the best algebra app for kids on the market. And now it is available for the Android app and phone.
Algebra can be a tricky subject to master but with the help of Hands-On Equations 1 Lite, equations such as 4x+2=3x+9 become child’s play! In three easy lessons the young student obtains a feeling of success and a sense of mathematical power in solving sophisticated looking equations.
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__ for FREE!
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.
This FREE app gives students a taste of the same in-depth algebraic experience they will have with the paid version of Hands-On Equations 1.
This is how the App works:-
•The unknown X is represented by a blue pawn on the Android screen while the constants are represented 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.
•Beginning 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.
Hands-On Equations 1 Lite is perfect for introducing algebra to kids (or adults) in an entertaining and fun way. The app will boost their self-esteem and give them the confidence to take on even more complicated equations! Download this FREE app today and see how much fun and how easy algebra can be!
