Just one of the recent equations Hunter solved, thanks to Dragon Box.
Somehow in a span of two days with just a few gaming sessions, Hunter went from dragging pictures of whimsical dragons around on a screen to solving some pretty serious algebra equations.
Now that he's beat the game we're just trying to figure out where to go next. I never knew algebra was so much fun, but as Jordan Shapiro said on his Forbes.com review of the game, "[the creator] didn’t gamify algebra. Instead, he found algebra’s intrinsic game and brought it to life." Precisely.

Dragon Box isn't a free app, but it's genius and practical magic is probably the best $6 I have spent on my kid in a long time. You can find it at the app store for iPod, iPad, and mac.
Also available in the Google Play store.
