Hands on Equations with Chocolate

Algebra and chocolate... yum!

Algebra and chocolate… yum!

Move over pawns, we have a new way of doing Hands on Equations to help jazz up the last five lessons.  Instead of using the blue and white pawns, we are using chocolate and yogurt covered raisins.

My son Bruce started doing Hands On Equations a year and a half ago.  (For more info, click here.)  We very steadily worked on one lesson a week all through first grade.  But in second grade, Bruce’s normal school work was doing a better job of “filling up his brain”, so we moved Hands On Equations to the back burner. This summer we’ve been cooking it up again, and are almost done.

Here’s an example of the problems he is working on now:

3(-x) + 2 = -10 + x

I can’t say enough good things about Hands on Equations.  I’m still really impressed.  If you’ve got a kid who can handle third grade math, be sure to look into it.   The website is: http://www.borenson.com/
