Critical Thinking is another company that I really like! And when we at the Crew were asked if we would like to review for them I was like….heck yeah!…loving it!!!
We were given a choice of which item we would like to review out a list. I chose → Math balance Teaches Algebra.
The cost for this book is $14.99 and it says it for grades 4th -12th. (64 pages)
One of the main reason I like this company so much is due to the past books I have used. I enjoy the critical thinking, computation and problem solving. When I give these type of books to my son – I tell him they are more like puzzles. It takes the “fear factor” away!
The website describes the book as: “Understanding algebraic equations and solving algebra word problems has never been easier or more fun! This visual approach uses balance scales to teach algebra. The balance scales provide an intuitive, visual, and entertaining way to master fundamental algebraic concepts. The puzzle-like problems ensure students are cognitively involved while they hone their techniques of simplifying, substituting, and writing proofs to solve simultaneous equations.”
We enjoyed the book. When my son takes on the mindset of this stuff is puzzles….he sees it as fun…and forgot he was doing Algebra for a moment! ~smile~
