Solving Linear Equations

This Solving Linear Equations video also includes:

How can an equation have infinitely many solutions? Viewers first review the basic idea of solving a linear equation by applying inverse operations in the concept video. Four problem videos cover examples in solving linear equations, including those with multiple fractions that involve clearing the denominator.

Instructional Ideas

  • Use the video with pupils who need remediation in solving linear equations with variables on both sides
  • Pause videos to have viewers solve equations before viewing answers
Classroom Considerations

  • Be sure learners recognize the symbol for null set, as the video uses the symbol but does not explain what it is
Pros

  • Problem videos cover different situations (i.e., one solution, no solution, and infinitely many solutions)
  • Video shows each step in solving each equation
Cons

  • Uses nonstandard language, such as throw those together to indicate combining like terms and laws of distribution to indicate the distributive property
