Balance Benders‏ Review

Balance Benders

Price: $9.99 per level

About the Product & Company:

  For more than 50 years, our award-winning products have helped students of all abilities achieve better grades and higher test scores with highly effective lessons that sharpen the mind as they teach standards-based reading, writing, mathematics, science, and history. Our products are fun, easy to use, and guaranteed to produce better grades and higher test scores.

We design critical thinking into reading, writing, math, science and history lessons so students carefully analyze what they are learning. Deeper analysis produces deeper understanding, which results in better grades and higher test scores. Over time, students who practice critical thinking learn to apply it throughout their education and life.

"If we teach children everything we know, their knowledge is limited to ours.  If we teach children to think, their knowledge is limitless." - Michael Baker, President
We do not teach through drill and memorization or teach to the tests—we empower the mind! Our goals are higher grades, top test scores, and problem solving skills to meet all of life’s challenges. The Critical Thinking Company is recommended by Mensa, Learning Magazine, The Well Trained Mind, Dr. Toy, Creative Child Magazine, and used by Sylvan Learning Centers, Club Z In-Home Tutoring, leading U.S. public schools, and gifted & talented programs in 57 countries throughout the world.

About Balance Benders: 

Students develop deductive thinking and pre-algebra skills as they solve balance puzzles that are more fun and addictive than Sudoku puzzles! Students must analyze each balance to identify the clues, and then synthesize the information to solve the puzzle. Try one—and then try to stop!

Our Review: 
 We received the Balance Benders for Grades 2-6 for our review. This book has been a great learning book to keep their little minds thinking and solving problems. Our soon to be first grader loves math and she loves the challenge that this book presents. Our soon to be 3rd grader definitely enjoyed the concept of solving balance puzzles. The two of them work together to solve the puzzles and I love to see them enjoy learning and analyzing each problem together. Toward the middle of the book it is a lot more tough for the two of them, so we have made it a goal to finish solving the entire book by the end of this year.
