In this computer game, made available by Borough of Manhattan Community College, users can test their knowledge of algebraic principles. After selecting Play, users are prompted to select from the following topics: Variables on Opposite Sides, Radical Equations, Absolute Value Equations, Quadratic Equations, Inequalities, Absolute Value Inequalities, Basic Equations, Equations With Like Terms, Exponential Equations, Literal Equations, Systems By Substitution, and Fractions and Decimals. Once a topic is selected, users are prompted to choose from three difficulty levels. Before play begins, a short tutorial is shown that users must click through. During play, users drag and drop "Algebots", which represent variables, terms, or constants that can be used to solve any step in the equation. After completing an equation, the game randomly prompts users to play short bonus levels wherein they are instructed to select terms from an equation, solve for x, define a term, and more. The game default settings include a timer and sound effects. Both of these features can be toggled off by returning to the main page and selecting the gear icon. This resource is available for users with the Windows operating system.
