Alge-Blaster Plus! covers a year's worth of algebra curriculum with five different challenging activities including hundreds of problems, an on-screen tutorial, and an editor and record keeper for adding new problems and tracking progress.
Areas of algebra covered include integers, order of operations, monomials/polynomials, factoring, solving equations, systems of equations, algebraic fractions, radical expressions, quadratic expressions, and graphing.
The order of activities follows a typical one-year algebra course. The first activity, Learn, presents step-by-step ways of solving algebra problems and introduces important terms and properties. The second activity, Solve, reinforces the concepts and skills already learned and allows students to practice applying the steps with problems that include hints for when they're stuck.
The third activity, Translate, uses multiple-choice questions to translate words into algebraic equations and vice versa. The fourth activity, Graph, introduces coordinates and slopes of lines as students learn how to visualize mathematical relationships.
The final activity is the Alge-Blaster Game, in which students must solve algebra problems to protect their space station from asteroids. Points are earned based on the number of asteroids destroyed as well as the remaining lasers at the end of each level. ~ Brad Cook, All Game Guide
