Explore inverse operations. Video viewers watch as a teacher shows how to "undo" an operation by using the opposite operation. By the end, learners should grasp that addition is the opposite of subtraction and division is the opposite of multiplication. You might build context and let pupils know when they will need inverse operations.
Middle schoolers add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers. They find the square and the cube of numbers. They create a game incorporating computation on rational numbers. Everyone works together to write and evaluate expressions. Note: the associate video is only available via purchase, but the other activities hold enough value to support the lesson without it. 
Seventh graders simplify algebraic expressions using addition and subtraction to combine like items and solve for the variable. They work with inverse operations to solve equations with guided practice. Everyone completes various problems for independent practice.
Fifth graders discover how to use inverse operations to solve equations. In this inverse operations lesson, 5th graders explore visual examples. Students also practice solving problems that their instructors model.
Fourth graders demonstrate inverse operations by playing a card game.  In this inverse operations lesson plan, 4th graders work in small groups with a deck of cards.  Two players draw cards but do not look at them.  The recording student multiplies the numbers on the cards, recording the scores.  the other students figure out the inverse operation.  Students share their findings with the class.
Fifth graders explore the concept of inverse operations. In this algebra lesson, 5th graders use part, part, whole model to describe inverse operations. Students solve equation problems and word problems as they apply their knowledge of inverse operations.
Fifth graders solve equations. In this algebraic equations lesson plan, 5th graders use the inverse operation to solve an equation. The teacher reminds students to perform the operation on both sides of the equation. This lesson plan follows a teacher script.
Brainiacs explore the concept of solving single-variable equations.They use inverse operations to solve equations, and participate in activities such as balancing an equation scale. This is an awesome lesson, complete with game transparencies, worksheets, and multiple pdf attachments.
Young math whizzes role play a doctor operating on a patient without diagnosing the patient's condition. They relate this medical malpractice to performing a mathematical operation before evaluating conditions or deciding what the outcome should be.
Need a great activity to get your class performing operations with signed integers? Here are six different worksheets to use with lessons on adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, and problem solving with integers. This would also be great to use as for reviewing these concepts with your class.
Students solve one step equations. For this algebra lesson, students solve linear equations using division, multiplication, subtraction and addition. They investigate the correct way to keep an equation balanced.
Your class is asked to use inverse operations to solve eleven equations for unknown variables or to rearrange formulas to highlight a quantity of interest. By using the same reasoning as solving one- and two-step equations, algebra learners practice solving equations with multiple variables. This could also be good practice for science class.
A basic narrative is outlined for teaching a lesson on the addition and subtraction of integers. Using a number line, you can demonstrate how to find the sum of a positive and negative integer. On the right side of the page are links to subsequent lessons in the use of negative integers.
In this inverse operations activity, students solve equations using inverse operations. A detailed example and explanation is available prior to the exercises. This two-page activity contains four problems.
In this teacher's guide to the multiplying and dividing fractions worksheet, students learn that fractions are converted to decimals on a calculator. Students have guided practice multiplying a fraction by a whole number; multiplying a fraction by a fraction; and dividing fractions and mixed numbers, all on a calculator.
Third graders apply real world knowledge of how to undo something to addition and subtraction. In this inverse instructional activity, 3rd graders write the inverse of number problems. Students use inverse number sentences in word problems. Students complete several worksheets.
Eleventh graders solve one and two step algebraic equations. In this algebra lesson, 11th graders solve equations using multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. They model solving equations using candy so the students can see what is going on instead of just memorizing the rules.
The SmartBoard and Internet are both utilized in this math lesson. Students complete games and problems involving fact families and subtraction with regrouping. The technological elements in this lesson should make it especially engaging for students.
Students solve linear equations using one step. In this algebra lesson plan, students solve problems using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
In this solving multiplication and division equations worksheet, students problem solve and calculate the answers to thirty word problems and mathematical equations.
