For the middle school student, the transition from arithmetic to algebra is often quite daunting. In grade VI, the concept of a ‘variable’ is encountered for the first time. This is the stage where either a child embraces the newly introduced ‘Algebra’ or gets overwhelmed with the idea of numbers being replaced by letters of the alphabet. This is also the stage where the students learn to solve equations and find the value(s) of the unknown(s).

Here is a quick rewind of some interesting ideas that got featured on the Teachers of India website. We know it is not final. We know there are very many resources you found it useful that we couldn't feature in this particular list. How about you making your own list and sending it to us. We also invite you to remix ideas from your own experience and share it with larger teacher community. That would be a great bang to start the year!

You can also solve more complicated equations on a double ganit mala and open number line. This demo includes equations with multiple operations but with "x" appearing only once.

You can not only learn about basic math operations involving whole numbers and integers, but can also solve equations on a double ganit mala and open number line. This presentation demonstrates the concept of solving simple equations i.e. equations involving only one operation.

This worksheet is for students to practise the balancing of chemical equations, to better understand the concept of conservation of mass.
