Description: 
Level I of HandsOn Equations consists of six lessons and one review lesson. The student learns to solve equations such as 8+2x+3x=2x+1 and 2(2x+1)=3x+8. There are more than 80 equations for the student to solve. In Lesson 1, the student mentally tries to figure out the value of the pawn that makes both sides balance by using reasoning or a guessandcheck strategy. The game pieces do not move in this first lesson. In Lesson 2, the student places the game pieces unto the image of the balance scale to represent both sides of the abstract equation. In Lesson 3, the student uses "legal moves" with the pawns to simplify and solve for the unknown X. In Lesson 4, the student learns to use legal moves with the cubes. A video introduction is provided for each lesson. (See sample video at http://youtu.be/ZvFwkDaM4YE.) Each video introduction is followed by two examples and ten exercises.
