This app makes learning algebra fun and easy for children as young as age 8. Equations such as 4x+3=3x+9 become child's play!
In Lesson 1, the student mentally tries to figure out the value of the pawn that makes both sides balance. The game pieces are not intended to be moved in this lesson.
In Lesson 2, the student uses the game pieces to represent the abstract linear equation. After that, the challenge is to mentally find the value of the pawn that makes both sides balance.
In Lesson 3, after setting up the equation using the game pieces, the student employs "legal moves" to simplify the equation and solve for x. The student resets the equation in order to conduct the check.
A video introduction is provided for each lesson. (See YouTube video at http://youtu.be/ZvFwkDaM4YE.) Each video introduction is followed by two examples and ten exercises.
This app is limited to Level I of Hands-On Equations, consisting of six lessons and one review lesson. The student learns to solve equations such as 8+2x+3-x=2x+1 and 2(2x+1)=3x+8.
Like the physical Hands-On Equations program the linear equations presented involve whole number coefficients and whole number answers.
Hands-On Equations is the ideal first introduction to algebra for elementary and middle school students. Not only will these students have FUN and be fascinated with the program, their sense of self-esteem will be dramatically enhanced as they experience success with sophisticated looking algebraic equations.
High school students struggling with algebra will, for the first time, likely experience success and understanding as they work with this app.
More than a million students in the United States have benefited from the physical Hands-On Equations program. Our intent is that this app will open up the delightful world of algebra to millions of other students in the United States and throughout the world.
More information on Hands-On Equations can be found at www.borenson.com and on YouTube.
