I’ve never thought about starting with visual models like this! I suppose my struggle will be applying visual models to things that don’t necessarily come naturally to me. I plan to use the idea of a balance with solving multistep algebraic equations with physical blocks and brown paper sacks, then moving into maybe algebra tiles on a mat or drawing out the visual of algebra tiles on whiteboards before moving into actual “x” representation. I’m wondering the how I could slice things like geometric transformations on a coordinate plane like this? Or graphing linear equations?
