Algebra Through Puzzles
# Introduction

What is the mass of a single red square?

This course investigates how the logic you intuitively apply when solving puzzles mirrors fundamental algebraic strategies.

**The goal is to help you become a stronger problem solver!**

To do so, we will teach you new mathematical techniques and push you to recognize and generalize the algebraic techniques that you already intuitively use as you problem-solve.

- The mass of a full jar of honey is 1000 grams.
- With half of the honey, the total mass is 600 grams.

**What is the mass of the empty jar in grams?**

What weight will the fourth scale display?

Think carefully! There's a quick and clever shortcut for solving this.

At the end of this course, you'll have a thorough toolbox of algebraic techniques that feel natural to use and empower you to master complex problems and puzzles!

**How many green squares should be placed on the right side of the bottom scale in order to make it balance when released?**

We’ll also delve into some applications of algebra in physics!

**Which way will the balance above tilt if released?**
