Instructional Ideas

  • Use the practice problems as a warm-up review of solving simple equations
  • Ask individuals to record the property they use for each step of solving
Classroom Considerations

  • Examples begin with complex equations which feature the distributive property and variables on both sides
  • The ninth lesson in the series
Pros

  • References common errors to watch for when teaching this concept
Cons

  • Practice problems provided do not mirror the examples in the lesson; the examples are much more complex than the one-step equations given for practice
