This interactive pan balance, from Illuminations, allows students to enter and compare numeric or algebraic expressions. They can "weigh" the expressions they want to compare by entering them on either side of the balance, allowing them to practice arithmetic and algebraic skills, as well as to investigate the concept of equivalence.
