How I Use It
This tool is a great addition to a lesson about equations. It is engaging enough where students will not get bored right away. It can even be assigned as homework for extra practice without it feeling like homework.
My Take
After playing around with the app, I think this is a perfect addition to a lesson. It is engaging, and fun and students will play and learn at the same time. While playing, it doesn't even feel like you are learning math! It is nice that as the levels go on, the equations get more challenging to provide a challenge for the students. I think this is a good app for middle school students because it might be confusing or complex for younger kids since the app doesn't provide any hints or clues. The graphics could use more work, but overall it is a very well-designed app and gets the job done. I definitely see myself using this in the classroom or having my students play this at home for extra practice. It's engaging and fun, and I even had a good time playing it.
