I just signed up for the 2nd. I figure it’ll be good to know though I have no idea what it’ll be like! 😉
Hope to see you there!
FREE! Introductory Hands-On Equations Webinars-Montessori

Tuesday, February 09, 2010 from 6:15 PM – 7:00 PM (ET)
If you are interested in the above complimentary webinars simply click on the link of your choice to register.
This webinar will provide an overview of Hands-On Equations. Participants will gain an idea of how equations are represented and solved and how the concepts are applied to the solution of verbal problems. We will show how the game pieces are used to represent equations such as
4x + 3 = 3x + 9
2(x + 4) = x + 10
5x + 2(-x) + 3 = x + 9
2x = (-x) + 12
In addition, we will provide a glimpse of Hands-On Equations can assist students in solving verbal problems such as:
Three times a number, increased by 2, is the same as the number increased by 10. Find the number.
Eight years from now, Tom will be 4 years older than twice his present age. How old is he now?
By participating in this introductory webinar, participants will understand how Hands-On Equations can be of value to them in introducing their students in grades 3 – 9 to basic algebraic concepts. Full-length webinars and full-day workshops are available to provide educators with in-depth training.
