How I Use It
We use Dragon box, as well as other iPod, iPhone, iPad apps for free time during our school day. It is not a primary component of our curriculum but a fun addition to reinforce skills learned.
My Take
Dragon Box is a non threatening introduction to algebraic thinking The app teaches how to solve for an unknown and balance an equation without every realizing you are engaging in math.
