Welcome to Mathnasium’s Math Tricks series. Today we are solving linear equations in the form ax + b = c.
Earlier this year, we celebrated National Scavenger Hunt Day, and today, we’re joining in on the fun! Scavenger-hunt enthusiasts, get ready! Because we are sharing our own game with a math twist.
A scavenger hunt is a game based on a search for a list of items. This adventure for you and your child is enjoyable, and it helps identify instances of math around you. Download our activity page here to find the checklist. For added fun, take photos of every instance you find. Please note: these should be naturally occurring instances of math, and NOT hand-written math. Parental supervision is required when exploring outdoors or outside the home.
Happy math-hunting! Follow our Number Sense Blog for more activities or visit a Mathnasium Centre nearest you.
Mathnasium meets your child where they are and helps them with the customized program they need, for any level of mathematics.
