Question:

How does balancing equations and using inverse operations help one solve basic algebraic equations?

Inactive
Sara P.
Answer:

For example, lets solve for "a" in this equation: a + 5 = 7. I can use the inverse operation of subtraction to "balance" the equation. I subtract 5 from both sides. 5-5 equals zero and cancels out, and 7-5 equals 2. Therefore, the value for "a" is a=2.

Question:

How does Distributive Property help one to use known multiplication facts to solve unknown multiplication facts?

Answer:

(The example equation is 7x9). If one doesn't know 7 facts, they can break up the 7 into a 2 fact and a 5 fact. Now they can multiply 2x9=18 and 5x9=45. To get the final product, you add the two smaller products (18+45) to get the answer: 63.

Question:

How does Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences Theory implore educators to think outside of the box when it comes to learning styles and lesson engagement?

Answer:

Just as no child is exactly the same, the way they learn is not exactly the same as well! Therefore, it is imperative that teachers consider how students can learn best in any mix of the 8 intelligences that Gardner lists: visual, verbal, logical/mathematical, bodily/kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalist. With these intelligences understood, educators can create engaging lessons that reach all students and produce retention of academic learning material.
