I must recommend DragonBox to you. I got a bit excited and reviewed it on my blog a while back. If you haven’t come across it, it is a game that guides you through the process of solving equations superbly well. http://newtechtimeline.wordpress.com/2012/06/14/dragonbox-the-first-real-algebra-game/

Thanks for the share! We found it too have a post about it: http://www.avatargeneration.com/2012/07/math-game-dragonbox-to-be-tested-in-over-100-schools-across-the-us/

Let us know if you find any more interesting tools that we miss. Thanks!

All kids should start by playing http://www.dragonboxapp.com – this would teach them the concepts of algebra through fun and get them excited about taking on the challenges of the complex algebra that the above apps engage them in.
