Editor's Pick: 10 Second Grade Apps

3 of 10


This app helps kids as young as 5 grasp complex math concepts in a fun, interactive way.

Each round of the game features a screen with two distinct sides, with a treasure chest card on one side. The goal is to get the treasure chest card on its own by dragging cards from the deck that cancel each other out, just as if you were trying to solve for x in a real algebraic equation. This app offers several levels, so game play grows as the child learns.

The educational value is there, since DragonBox+ introduces kids to algebraic concepts that serve as the foundation for higher-level math. With artfully goofy graphics and a star reward system, it’s also really fun to play.
