This is a lesson on how to build the concept of equation in the minds of the students using different situations. Equations are oftentimes seen very vague or abstract by the students and actually, several of them solve the plain equations without an idea on what is the real significance of doing it. It is primarily aimed at forming the concept of equation which is focused on the word "Balance" . There are exercises to answer the equation mentally in order to establish first the "balance concept" before moving to solving equation by one step or multi-step. It is a good concept-building lesson to kick -off the learning of equation. You can make transparencies out of the pages and as well as handouts for the students to have some notes. You can also project it on a white screen using an overhead video projector and just use a marker to write on the given blanks. There are so many creative ways on how you can share it.
