'Many children today struggle with mathematics while other children want greater challenges. DragonBox is a revolutionary game that will make your child enjoy learning mathematics while progressing at his or her own pace.
Our intention has been to create a game that children experience as a real game that is actually fun, but where they after one hour of playing, they will be able to solve mathematic equations that they never thought they would be able to solve so quickly before.
The DragonBox game has been tested in schools in France and in Norway, and the results clearly demonstrate increased understanding of basic mathematics and the improved ability to solve equations. More importantly, it shows a significant positive change in children´s attitude towards learning mathematics.
DragonBox is taking Game Based Learning to a new level and will contribute to demystifying algebra in such a way that children at all levels will start to enjoy and embrace learning mathematics.
It is a great game for parents to play along with their kids – and freshen up their own math skills.
DragonBox+ contains an additional 100 standard equations to help your child become a real master of algebra.
The game is in English, French, Norwegian, Spanish and Swedish.'
