Balance Benders

This series of books by Critical Thinking Co., combines the creative fun of logic puzzles with basic pre-algebra skills to prepare students for future success in algebra. In each puzzle, students work to keep the scales "balanced" by working through the mostly pictorial representations of algebraic concepts. For example, given a balanced scale with a square on one side and a circle on the other, the following must always be true: circle equals square, 1 square & 1 circle equals 2 circles, and 2 circles equals 2 squares. Don't worry if these associations don't come to mind right off the bat. Each book includes a set of "Balance Tips" that provide quick review of basic algebraic concepts necessary to solve each and every one of the puzzles in the book. These algebra tips include the following: the symmetric property of equality and inequality, cumulative & associative properties of equality and inequality, addition & subtraction properties of equality and inequality, multiplication & division properties of equality and inequality, distributive property, transitive property of equality and inequality, and more. Reproducible, solutions included, 46 perforated pages. - Enh
