Hands-On Equations Shout Out!24 December 2011
Math is one subject I dread teaching. For me, math is SO easy (well, not calculus, but that was a whole different ballgame ;) ) I just get it and I don't understand why the kids don't. 5 + 5 is 10. It always will be. And I just don't see how some kids can't grasp that concept. So when I am looking for ideas and ways to teach math concepts, I always look for things that will help the students better understand with little frustration on my part ;)
Hands-On Equations was a program sent from the gods to my classroom. It so simply, so easily, so ridiculously effectively taught algebra concepts to my struggling 4th and 5th graders that I thank my lucky stars I went to the random inservice one day to learn about this program.
I wish I had some free worksheets to give you that I created to go along with this program, but I don't. The program itself is just THAT GOOD. I really, really love it and just wanted to spread the love. :)
