Students learn how to solve two step equations by using algebraic tiles or visuals when completing each step of the equation. This helps students visualize and understand the mathematical procedures. This activity provides opportunities for students to represent the equation with visuals, mathematical representation, and make a conclusion based on each solution. Students are engaged and easily gasp the concept of an equation when reinforcing both sides are equivalent. The scale helps students understand both sides are equal. It is a good opportunity to reinforce and introduce math vocabulary such as: equivalent, variable, constant, and solution.
