Dr. Borenson's Balance Model for Solving Equations
Hands-On Equations is a supplementary program that can be used with any math curriculum to provide students with a concrete foundation for algebra. It uses the visual and kinesthetic instructional approach developed by Dr. Henry Borenson to demystify abstract algebraic concepts. This hands-on, intuitive approach enhances student self-esteem and interest in mathematics.
In just six lessons you students in grades 3 and up will learn to solve equations such as 4x + 5 = 2x + 13 and 2(2x + 3) = 3x + 9. In the seventh lesson, they learn a pictorial solution approach.
