Description: 
The unknown X variable is represented by a blue pawn on the iPad screen while the constants are represented by number cubes. In Lesson 1 the icons do not move. The student uses thinking or guess and check to solve the equations. Beginning with Lesson 2, the student places the game pieces on the balance scale to represent the two sides of the equation. Beginning with Lesson 3, the student simplifies the equation by removing pawns from the balance to solve for the unknown X. The student verifies his/her solution by resetting the problem to conduct the check. Feedback is provided to the student in the check phase of the problem. Touch features are used to move the pieces around.
