DragonBox Elements learning game teaches geometry through puzzles

By

DragonBox has come out with a new learning game to teach geometry.

Available now for iOS and Android, DragonBox Elements takes kids on an adventure to defeat the evil dragon Osgard. By completing geometric proofs, players free characters from hidden shapes and recruit them into a heroic army.

DragonBox Elements features over 100 geometry puzzles designed to foster curiosity for math and improve logical reasoning skills. It’s aimed at kids 9 years and older.

The mobile game costs $5. It gets its name from Elements, an influential 13-volume work in the history of mathematics and geometry, which was written by the Greek mathematician Euclid.

New to the world of edtech, I arrived at the 2016 SETDA/ISTE conferences in Denver, Colorado, as the chief academic officer of the New Jersey Department of Education. I was there to celebrate two New Jersey educators who were being recognized for their work fostering student voice.
