Demystifying the Learning of Verbal Problems with Hands-On Equations®

After a brief review showing how Hands-On Equations is used to solve an equation such as 4x + 3 = 3x + 9, we will consider how problems such as the following can be made visual:

• Five times a number, increased by 2, is the same as three times the same number, increased by 12. Find the number.
• James and Jack have the same number of pencils. James has four boxes. Jack has two of the same boxes as James and 6 extra pencils. All the boxes have the same number of pencils. How many pencils are in each box?
• Karen is 6 years older than twice Pedro's age. If the sum of their ages is 27, how old is each?
• The length of a rectangle is 5 units more than its width. If the perimeter of the rectangle is 64, how long is each?
• The sum of three consecutive numbers is the same as twice the value of the last number. Find the numbers.

By participating in this introductory webinar, you will see how verbal problems can be made visual using the ideas of Hands-On Equations. This webinar is appropriate for teachers of grades 4-8 and teachers of high school students having difficulty with algebra.
