Solving Linear Equations in One Variable

(1)
View Resource

Description

Overview:
This lesson unit is intended to help teachers assess how well students are able to: solve linear equations in one variable with rational number coefficients; collect like terms; expand expressions using the distributive property; and categorize linear equations in one variable as having one, none, or infinitely many solutions. It also aims to encourage discussion on some common misconceptions about algebra.

Quality of Explanation of the Subject Matter: Superior (3)

Very clear instructions of what to do in each part of the lesson and how it connects to the overall objective

Utility of Materials Designed to Support Teaching: Strong (2)

There are multiple worksheets, but I did not see a way to accommodate for a student who may not be able to do the worksheets. Also, there could be more of a variety of materials that are more interactive.

Opportunities for Deeper Learning: Limited (1)

The initial engagement could be a little stronger during class time. Maybe make it more interactive or encourage them to think of linear equations in the real world.

This is a lesson/assessment tool. There are many teacher resources to aid in the lesson. There are ppt, detailed lessons, assessments, student handouts, suggestions of prompts to help students think about their work and to help guide them in the right direction. This addresses CCSS 8.EE.7 as they do solve one variable equations; analyze when an equation is Always, sometimes, or never true; and they learn and use the distributive property.
