This is an amazing way to learn and practice algebra concepts within a kid-friendly, proven, step-by-step method. Even though Hands-on Equations 1 looks a little old-school and doesn't have the animation and other wow factors that are standard on many math learning apps for elementary school-age students, it's as fun -- and perhaps even more engaging -- because it's so easy to follow. The gradual lessons, clear visuals, audio instructions, and opportunities for help and review take the stress out of learning math concepts. Hands-on Equations is a low-stress, boredom-busting app for kids to learn or practice algebra, and it may be an excellent way for kids using the same system in school to practice at home.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
