The goal of this course is to strengthen your child’s understanding of fractional equivalence and the algebraic principles used in solving linear equations. What does that mean? We are going to do algebra with fractions! The purpose of this course is to provide your child with a concrete and intuitive approach to solving fractional linear equations such as y + ⅓ y + 15 = 2y + 5 and y + ⅓ y - 4 = 16 + ½ y while having fun. Since algebra deals with abstract symbols, many students have difficulty conceptualizing the meaning of algebraic linear equations and the means of their solution, particularly when fractions are involved. The visual and kinesthetic approach of Hands-On Equations® Fractions enables students to grasp algebraic concepts concretely, pictorially, and then abstractly. The goal is to have students conceptualize mathematics, rather than do mathematics by rote. Completion of prior MSHA fractions classes is helpful but not required. Taught by Colleen Vann.
