Advanced Math...Hands-on Algebra

Today was the last lesson of our Hands-On Algebra Unit. We had a lot of fun learning how to solve for the variable x using pawns, numbered cubes, and a scale. In our last lesson we learned how to solve for x without using any of these materials. We can now solve this problem simply by using our paper, pencils, and our brains!
2(2x + 4) + x = x(x + 1) + 11
