"1, 2, 3, 4 who really knows the score?  Ten, Ten, Yeah Ten!!!"

Circle Addition Equation -When you think about it, an equation is very similar to our balance for comparing mass.  If both pans have an equal amount, the balance is balanced.  If both sides of our equation have an equal amount, our equation is also balanced or equal.  BE SURE TO CLICK ON PRACTICE MODE when first playing this game!  Click on the correct circle that would make the equation balanced or equal.
