Shuttle Mission Math

This iOS app is a puzzle game that makes algebraic thinking both visual and interactive as equations are represented with balance scales, weights, and little creatures called Zogs. The goal at each of the 24 levels is to find the weight of each space creature and assemble a team for the next shuttle mission. Players must apply ideas such as equality, proportional reasoning, variables, and combining groups of objects.
