Hands-on, concrete approach to algebraic linear equations
Enhances student interest in mathematics
Does not require any algebraic prerequisites
Developed by Dr. Henry Borenson, this is an innovative approach to introducing students to algebraic linear equations. Hands-On Equations® consists of three levels. At each level students use the game pieces to physically “set up” the given algebraic equation. They then use “legal moves” to physically solve equations. This system makes algebraic linear equations accessible to gifted third grade students, average fourth grade students, and learning disabled fifth grade students. For use with one student. Contains manuals for three levels, worksheets, answer key, and one packet of game pieces with flat laminated balance. Grades 3-8.
