DragonBox 

Algebra 5+®

DragonBox Algebra 5+ teaches youngsters concepts related to solving mathematical equations … without coming across as an instructional app. Through a fun, engaging game, users learn the basics of addition, division, and multiplication. The game’s object? Isolate the DragonBox on one side of the game board (equation). Cute baby dragons and simple language keep the app fun and non-threatening, and the rewards system (earning stars and unlocking levels before moving to the next one) keeps users engaged and wanting to do (learn!) more. Cost: $2.99.


Arborgraphia®

Fans of the University of Louisiana-Lafayette and its beautiful campus will love this new app, which gives users a new perspective and a chance to learn about the many trees located on the UL campus. The app provides an alphabetical index of all the species of trees on campus, along with a map view of the “most significant and interesting” trees. Simply touch a mark on the map to bring up information about the tree. One of our favorite features is the themed tree tour, which takes visitors to the UL campus on 15-minute strolls to some of the most interesting trees on campus, while providing information along the way about the tree’s scientific information and history. Cost: Free.
