This recording of a 45-minute webinar will provide teachers with an overview of the methods and strategies used in the Hands-On Equations Fractions program. The program is intended for students in grades 4 – 9 who have completed at least Level 1 of Hands-On Equations. The webinar will provide strategies to enable students in grades 4 and up to solve equations such as y + 1/3 y + 1 = 9 and 2y – 1/2 y = y + 1/6 y + 12 in a meaningful manner. Students use their fraction blocks and numbered cubes on the laminated balance scale to represent and solve these equations and related verbal problems.
