This video series shows me introducing early algebra concepts to my 6 and 8 year old daughters using Cuisenaire rods and Base ten blocks. I covered some base ten rods with paper and Mod-Podge to represent "x" here.
I got these ideas from Crewton Ramone's House of Math. He uses different blocks than I do and his are actually meant to be used for algebra. Cuisenaire/Base 10 blocks are what I have here so I just made some cosmetic changes in order to do the same things he shows in his videos.
