Algebra/Hands-On Equations®

Algebra for the young
and the young at heart!

For ages 8 and up.

... a fun way to introduce your children to algebra.

"I cannot recommend this enough, I am so impressed, and I have not raved about a math program that I can think
of without qualification!"
–Julie Brennan, Editor,
LivingMath.net

"For the first time in my life, I actually understood how to do algebra and why it works. You and your child do not have to fear algebra. With Hands-On Equations, the solution to algebra is in your hands! I give it an A+!"
- The Old SchoolHouse- The Magazine for Homeschooling Families

 It is a whole-brain instructional approach to introducing students in grades 3 – 9 to significant algebraic concepts. The program utilizes the power of the visual and kinesthetic senses to help children grasp concepts that many 9th graders taking Algebra I in school or at home find difficult to understand when those concepts are taught in an abstract manner. Dr. Borenson received a U.S. patent for Hands-On Equations. See Eric, age 8, do a video demo for you!

Research Supported
 In six lessons you can expect to see significant gains in your students' algebraic knowledge and skill, including their ability to understand and solve equations such as4x + 3 = 3x + 9 and 2(2x + 1) = 2x + 10 with confidence. Barclay (1992), in a study involving 123 students ages 11-13, reported, "100% of the students demonstrated at least 80% mastery on at least two out of the three tests that followed the instruction." Barber and Borenson (2007) reported a rise in mean from 44.8% on the pre test to 85.5% on the post test for four inner city 5th grade Title I classrooms.
