# Summary

To demonstrate the fun way to learn algebra with the use of Algebra Hand Equations!

A powerful whole-brain instructional approach to learning algebra. The box and pawns can be used to calculation algebra equations. It can demonstrate basic algebra with dice boxes and pawns. During the design and contraction process, the use of basic 3D geometry has been used.

# How I Designed This

To create the dice boxes, which consists of two parts, a box and number. The pawn is formed by importing in to tinkercad a 3D object from the tinkercad community and adding a letter x to it.

The student can design different shapes to represent X equation and Numbers. All parts are designed for 3D printing

3,Pawn,Pawn = 5, 8      <b>X = 5</b>

# Project: Algebra Hand Equations

Object

Students will be able to learn basic algebra through use of this basic 3D gemology objects. Students will find out how to think about calculating algebra differently with this tool.

1,Pawn,Pawn,Pawn = Pawn,5      <b>X = 2</b>

Audience

The middle school years present the last opportunity for school administrators and teachers to    provide their students with the grounding that they will need to succeed with Algebra 1.

According to Dr. Borenson, prior to going into an Algebra 1 class, students should be able to easily solve equations such as 4x+3=3x+9 and 2(2x+3)=x+12. In addition they should be able to solve simple word problems algebraically. Hands-On Equations can make this possible. This supplementary program will be the best investment districts can make to help their students succeed with the abstract world of algebra!

3X+1 = X+7      <b>X = 10</b>

Preparation

The preparation for this project is the study of the fundamental mathematical principles.
Material: 3D printer, No tools required.

4X = 3X+5      <b>X = 20</b>

Steps

Students first create the box. Create a number and add it to the face of the box.

Create 1-9 boxes. Import a pawn object from the tinkercad community.

Add a letter X to the pawn.

Students and create other object and add a letter X to it to represent the algebra equation.

Create a scale by using square geometric and adjust down to a board looking object.

You can build almost anything out of it. Design a scale with it.

5X+2 = 2X+14      <b>X = 22</b>

Results

Studies in more than 135 classrooms in 17 states involving more than 2500 students have yielded unequivocal evidence of the ability of elementary and middle school students to quickly learn basic algebraic concepts through the use of the Hands-On Equations method of instruction, and to transfer their learning to the pictorial representation

Sample problems are in the PDF

Excellent for Middle school students
provide your middle school students with solid foundation in solving equations and verbal problems.

2X+X+4 = 4X+1      <b>X = 13</b>
