Unit of InstructionUnit 2: Solving Multi-Step Equations
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.8.EE.3.7:  Solve linear equations in one variable.  Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • Students will learn how to solve equations for one variable by using inverse operations.
  • Students will begin by working with one-step equations in order to become familiar with using addition to undo subtraction, subtraction to undo addition, multiplication to undo division, and division to undo multiplication.
Classroom Activities

Monday/Tuesday:

  • Students will watch a video on solving one-step equations.
  • We will fill in a doodle notes page on solving one-step equations.
  • Students will then do a Math Crush coloring activity on solving one-step equations.

Wednesday:

  • Students will start two rotations:  a scavenger hunt on one-step equations and a Battleship game solving one-step equations.

Thursday/Friday:

  • Students will complete the rotations they started on Wednesday and then will switch to the opposite activity.
Assignments Due
  • One-step equations scavenger hunt due on Th/Fri September 20/21.
