    "All Hands-On Desks" for Algebra

     

    When was the last time you heard cheers (not tears) for Algebra?

     

    Third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students John B. Dey Elementary School in Virginia Beach, Va., have access to "Hands on Equations," thanks to a $980 grant from VBEF made possible by Cherry, Bekaert & Holland L.L.P.   A visual and kinesthetic instructional system, Hands On Equations (HOE) is designed to demystify the learning of Algebra.

    Project Director, Leslie Law, gifted resource teacher, is helping the school achieve its goal that EVERY student at John B. Dey will have the opportunity to go through all HOE levels, 1 - 3.   Teachers incorporate “manipulatives,” word problems and use Smartboards to visually illustrate lessons.



    And the students really love it.
