# Hands-On Equations®

Powerful Whole Brain Learning

# Making Algebra Child's Play®

The one-day Hands-On Equations workshop for teachers of grades 3-8

(More than 50,000 attendees since 1990!)

Enhance the self-esteem of your young students!

When elementary school students succeed with algebra, they see themselves as having a higher capacity for learning. This new vision of themselves can impact their entire school career.

Middle school students receive a solid foundation to continue their work with algebra.

Learn the power of a concrete and pictorial approach to algebraic linear equations!

• Learn how to concretely model linear equations
• Understand the "legal moves" which may be used to solve equations
• Enable your students to solve equations such as 4x + 3 = 3x + 9 in just three lessons
• Experience the "teacher-as-the-coach" mode of instruction
• Understand the power of Piagetian learning
• Enable your students to understand and solve equations such as 2(2x+3) = 3x+7
• Learn how to enhance student mathematical communication
• Learn the pictorial representation for solving equations
• The secret to using the traditional written notation for solving equations
• Learn a visual way to present the addition property of equality, the property of additive inverses, and the additive identity property for solving algebraic equations
• Learn a meaningful way to teach addition and subtraction of integers

## Provide your middle school students with a solid foundation for algebra!

### Middle school students who can easily solve algebraic linear equations such as 2(2x + 3) = 3x + 12 and apply this skill to the solution of algebraic word problems, as presented in this workshop, will have a great advantage when going into a traditional algebra 1 class.

• Sally is 4 years older than Tim. If the sum of their ages is 20, how old is each?
• Brian buys one pack of baseball cards to add to the two cards a friend gave him. Then his mother gives him two more packs as a special treat. Now he has as many cards as Marcus who owns one pack plus 12 loose cards. How many cards are in each pack?

## This workshop will help your students meet the following Common Core Math Process Standards:

• Use appropriate tools strategically
• Model with mathematics
• Look for and make use of mathematical structure
• Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
• Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them

Recommended for:

This workshop is recommended for teachers of mathematics in grades 3 - 8. Teachers of the gifted in grade 2 and teachers of high school students struggling with algebra will also find this workshop of value.
