DragonBox is a first-of-a-kind math game where kids are learning to solve equations without even knowing that they are learning math. After two hours of playing the game, more than 80 % of the kids are able to solve equations•The game become the number one sold app in any category on Apple App Store when it was launched in Norway in May kicking out games like Angry Birds. DragonBox has captured the essence of equation solving. The beauty of mathematics is that it is a game with symbols. The symbols themselves are irrelevant, but the fact that they are traditionally denoted by x or y puts off many people. Denoting them by boxes or dragons does not change the game, but makes it more attractive and more transparent.
