How I Use It
I'm still a college student so I never used it in a classroom setting. I would use this to teach my students to think algebraically. This would allow them to have a less hard time when learning real algebra. I would allow each student to use the app at their own pace. I would give them hints on how to solve it but I wouldn't tell them the answers. I would also encourage them to work with each to come up with the answers.
My Take
I really like how the app can integrate learning into playing games. I believe this is a great app for young or struggling students to learn basic concepts of algebra visually before they get into the complex parts with numbers and variables. I believe this would allow students to be more interesting with math since it's usually intimating for some students.
