Solving Equations

If you have two bags with an unknown number of tiles, represented by x, and you add three tiles to get seven total, you can set up a linear equation to represent the problem. Use this example and a few others to demonstrate how to solve such problems and fulfill a Common Core standard at the same time. Consider using a couple of bags, some tiles, and a balance to make the concepts more visual for first-time linear equation learners!
