We have been learning about = and what it really means.
Did you know it doesn't mean the answer?
It means the same. Numbers on each side of the equal sign equal the same amount. It has to balance on each side.
We used the balance scales to come up with interesting equations that were equal on both sides.
|Both sides equal 70|
|Checking it balances( is equal) on the scales.|
|Working together to make each side equal|
|Isaiah and George made their equation equal|
|Ella and Henrietta checking their equation balances (is equal)|
|A human scale. Was the equation equal?|
