- Hands on Equations: Algebra Learning Systems

Grades: 5th

Class size: 30

Time: 30 minutes

I used these materials over a week period for 30 minutes during my math time. We started out with the students and I working on simple algebra problems together like: x+2 = 5 (solve for x). After working on samples together the students worked in pairs giving each other problems to solve. We then worked up to harder problems as they became more nimble with the materials.

I liked the options I had to demonstrate the strategy while having students work on them on their own.
