Balancing Act: A Math Exploration

Balance scales are a useful way to model subtraction and algebraic equations. We will learn the basics and then put our creativity to the test, picking up some integer arithmetic practice along the way.

Class Experience

There are many mathematical concepts that may come up as we work on the problem, depending on the examples students come up with and their prior knowledge. Some concepts include: addition and subtraction of integers, flexible arithmetic thinking, alternate bases (like binary and ternary), making an organized list, and problem solving strategies.
I taught K-12 math for ten years, in both classroom and enrichment settings. Then over the past five years, I've completed my PhD in math, where my research is in geometry and topology. Encouraging mathematical curiosity and helping people to have positive math experiences are my passions.
Some extension problems will be offered at the end of class as takeaways.
1file available upon enrollment
Students will need a writing utensil, and there is a collection of worksheets to download and print before class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
