Understanding algebraic equations and solving algebra word problems has never been easier or more fun!
This visual approach uses balance scales to teach algebra. The balance scales provide an intuitive, visual, and entertaining way to master fundamental algebraic concepts. The puzzle-like problems ensure students are cognitively involved while they hone their techniques of simplifying, substituting, and writing proofs to solve simultaneous equations.
Balance Math Teaches Algebra is designed to move from simple to complex, with lessons scaffolding on earlier learning. And like all the Balance Math and More! books, these problems involve critical thinking and computation.
To students, these problems are more like puzzles, with just enough challenge to forget they are doing math!
