Parents FAQ

I am a homeschooler. How early can I introduce my child to Algebra using Hands-On Equations?

You may begin as early as age eight if your child can do simple sums, such as 7 + 8, count by 7’s, etc.

Does Hands-On Equations require any prior knowledge of algebra?

No. The program does not assume any previous knowledge of algebra on either the part of the child or the parent.

What must I purchase to teach Hands-On Equations to my two children simultaneously?

The Hands-On Equations Learning System or the Deluxe Home Set comes with one student kit. Hence, you will want to purchase an additional Student Kit (K-1000) for a second child.

Do I need the DVD Instructional Manual to use Hands-On Equations with my child?

Our printed manuals are well illustrated, so you should not need the DVD. However, it is beneficial to have it because you and your child will see a video presentation of each lesson.

When should I begin introducing my child to the Hands-On Equations Introductory Verbal Problems Workbook?

We suggest you start the verbal problems after the child has completed Level I of the program, which consists of the first seven lessons.

My 14-year-old son is having trouble with algebra in school. Can Hands-On Equations help him?

Absolutely. The program has been effective in assisting students to develop a robust conceptual understanding of linear equations, which serves as a solid foundation for their algebraic journey.

Is Hands-On Equations a full-year algebra course?

No. The program consists of 26 lessons intended to enable the student to develop a firm grasp of linear equations. It does not discuss second-degree equations or many other topics in a full-year algebra course.

How long is a typical Hands-On Equations Lesson?

Many lessons can be completed in 20 to 40 minutes. This includes understanding the lesson, doing the two sample problems, and completing the lesson worksheet.

Do the Hands-On Equations apps cover the same material as the physical program?

The Hands-On Equations 1, 2, and 3 apps do not include the three pictorial lessons. Otherwise, it covers all of the content of the learning system.

How can I expect my child to benefit from Hands-On Equations?

Due to students’ success with the program, you can expect to see a greater interest in mathematics and a greater level of self-confidence concerning math.

What is the difference between the two Hands-On Equations verbal problems books?

The Hands-On Equations Introductory Verbal Problems Workbook is intended for students in grades 3 – 6 and focuses on verbal problems involving Level I of Hands-On Equations. Also, a solution template is provided to assist the student. The Hands-On Equations Verbal Problems Book has more than 300 verbal problems on all three levels of Hands-On Equations and is intended for students in grades 6 – 12.

How does the Developing Fractions Sense program differ from Hands-On Equations Fractions?

The Developing Fractions Sense A, B, and C programs focus on the fraction concepts students are expected to learn in Grades 3, 4, and 5, respectively. The Hands-On Equations Fractions program extends the Hands-On Equations program for solving linear equations to linear equations with fractional coefficients.
