This really is algebra, but your students won’t feel like it! (*contains one 10 question quiz)*.

This app-like game format brings in all the algebraic thinking--**visually**! Students are solving algebraic equations on an outline format that accomplishes all of the problem solving and critical thinking you are looking to build in them.

It’s okay to have fun with math. This formatting really helps students open up to the flexibility and joy of solving algebraic equations. Why not learn with puzzles? Your students will thank you.

These equations have one variable, and are one or two steps from solving.

**How to solve**:

**Think of the hangar as a balance scale**.

Each branch has an equal total. If it branches sideways into 2 sections, each part will be half of the total it came from (If 3 sideways branches, they are each one third).

With multiple variables seen in the more complicated versions, just like algebraic, **all x’s will have the same value**, just as all y’s will be equal to each other (in that problem).

CCSS6.EE.B.6

Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.

CCSS6.EE.B.5

Understand solving an equation or inequality as a process of answering a question: which values from a specified set, if any, make the equation or inequality true? Use substitution to determine whether a given number in a specified set makes an equation or inequality true.

CCSS6.EE.A.4

Identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them). For example, the expressions 𝘺 + 𝘺 + 𝘺 and 3𝘺 are equivalent because they name the same number regardless of which number 𝘺 stands for.

CCSS6.EE.A.2b

Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity. For example, describe the expression 2 (8 + 7) as a product of two factors; view (8 + 7) as both a single entity and a sum of two terms.

CCSS6.EE.A.2

Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
