These algebraic equations with pan balances digital Boom Cards™ are a great way to practice problem-solving while learning algebra. Challenge your students to think outside the box with these algebraic equations: pan balance digital task cards! A great way to practice critical thinking skills! There are 40 task cards of varying difficulty perfect for grades 4-6. Cards start out fairly easy and get increasingly more difficult as students progress through the deck (cards). Students type their answers and then click "submit" to get immediate feedback! It may be helpful for students to have a piece of paper and a pencil to work through the problems as they go through the deck.

★ Tip for Struggling Students: ★
Make this activity more concrete by having students make their own balances by using two pieces of paper to represent each side of the balance and then find small manipulatives such as teddy bear counters, paper clips, etc. to represent the objects. Then have students set up the problem on each task card and solve!
Also included in this download is a "Getting Started with Boom Cards Quick Guide Tutorial" that will walk you through how to set up an account, how to set up a classroom, how to assign decks to students, how to play decks and how to monitor student progress.
