This game has incredible potential. I am eager to download a version and try it out with my step kids. It is a fun game that gradually moves kids from abstract symbols to algebra specific symbols while teaching the fundamentals of balancing and equation and isolating variables.
I would like to see how they transition kids in to real world applications of these skills to see if the knowledge transfers to solving word problem or if the skills remain isolated in game play.
