Early Algebra for the SMART Board:
Expressions and Equality
by Dr. Henry Borenson
This SMART Board application, intended for teachers of students in grades 1 - 3, focuses on the relational meaning of equality (CCSS 1.OA.7). Using objects and pictures, students combine like terms, evaluate expressions and determine the missing value to make two expressions equal (CCSS 1.OA.8).
Evaluate 1: 2a + 3p if a = 5 and p = 10.
Example 2: Find the unknown value in 3a - a + 2p - p = 2a + ___
Example 3: 4 + __ + 5 = 10 - 2 + 3
