Algebra is great fun - you get to solve puzzles!

With computer games you play by running, jumping or finding secret things. Well, with Algebra you play with letters, numbers and symbols, and you also get to find secret things!

And once you learn some of the "tricks", it becomes a fun challenge to work out how to use your skills in solving each "puzzle". |
