    Balance Benders is a series of quick, fun, puzzle-like activities in which kids employ logic and reasoning to find solutions. It gets them thinking algebraically, so much so that by the time they are exposed to algebra it will seem strikingly familiar. Each puzzle uses either the image of a balance scale with equal weight on both sides, or multiple scales, some of which may be out of balance. The familiar symbols that make up the weight on one side of a balanced scale (circles, rectangles, diamonds, numbers . . .) may look quite different from what's on the other side, but kids know intuitively that they are equivalent because the scale is balanced. The interactive puzzles provide onscreen tools that allow kids to work out the problem before selecting their answers. The simplicity of the imagery provides a gateway through which kids find themselves doing some surprisingly advanced substitutions and comparisons. Meanwhile, they're having the time of their lives.

    I like that this [program] is helping prepare Brandon for algebra. What I like the most is that my children are enjoying learning math. Math is my hardest subject. So to see my children enjoying AND understanding math is awesome!

    As the mom and teacher, I LOVE that these books really make my children think hard and stretch them to think about things and problems they have never encountered before.

    By making the problems visual and removing the numbers, algebra is automatically made far less overwhelming and much more concrete. I would definitely recommend these books.

    I've seen improvement in my daughter's overall-math lessons as she has worked through the book.

    Used as a supplement to whatever math program is being used, this book definitely provides exposure to a greater variety of math problems than endless pages of math drills.

    <em>Balance Benders™</em> meets a great need of building deductive reasoning as well as building the understanding of balancing equations.
