### Description

Bring your "A" game and challenge your classmates to a match. Middle school math meets Friday night cage fights in this algebra skills iPad app featuring timed rounds, realistic prizefights sound effects, and pre-game trash talk!

In Algebra Combat, players alternate turns to see who can solve sets of single-variable linear equations with the best time and accuracy. Equations are randomly generated in one of four difficulty levels. All solutions are integers less than 40 and presented as multiple choice.

Beginners may need to jot down a step or two on a piece of paper. More advanced players will be able to solve these problems on the fly. With continued gameplay, students develop increased confidence with entry level algebraic expressions, negative integers, and quick mental calculations.

Both practice and competition modes are included. All rounds contain 5 equations to solve. Scores and times are provided following each round. A "Current Rankings" score tally also follows each competition round. Best rounds of all time are entered into the "Top Fighters" hall of fame along with the player's name, time, score, and difficulty level played.

In keeping with the cage fight theme, players are encouraged to give their fighters a cool name and type in a little "trash talk" before each round. All trash talk messages are then delivered to the opposing player at the beginning of his or her turn… ensuring matches are both spirited and entertaining.
