Making Equal Equations

In Maths last week, 2KJ learnt about making equal equations.

Usually when we complete equations, we just need to solve the answer…

However, it is important to know that you can also make equal equations. The “equals sign” means that the equations on either side of the equals sign are equal to each other. You could say they are balanced.

To practise making equal equations, students had to complete a series of questions by adding in the missing numbers. Their goal was to make sure the equations were equal to each other.

You can even mix up the different mathematical operations to make equal equations…

As an extra challenge, students had to make up their own equal equations using whatever operations they liked.

Can you solve these equations to make them equal?
