TeacherKristin Andreason
Subject Area8th Grade Intensive Math
Grade Level8
Week #Ten
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 use subtraction correctly when solving equations whether they are subtracting from a larger number, a smaller number, or even a negative number.
  • Students will learn that when we start with a negative number and we subtract, that this is the same as adding a negative and the result will be a bigger negative.
  • Students will expand from solving one-step equations to solving two-step equations.
Classroom Activities


  • Students will do three rotations
    • Teacher rotation–we will look at their worksheets and identify misunderstanding
    • Technology–students will do an IXL (7th grade C.1) and then iReady
    • Activity–students will do a one-step equations partner worksheet (answers should match)


  • We will play the Four Corners Game where students add positive and negative numbers and then go the the corner with the letter of the correct answer


  • Students will work on iReady
  • Students will do and IXL (8th grade W.7)
  • Students will play Jeopardy on solving equations
Assignments Due
  • IXL 7th grade C.1 due on October 17.
  • Worksheet on one-step equations (started last week) due on October 17.
