# Q1 W3 August 26-30 Algebra I Teacher Stephanie Durrance Algebra I Honors 7th/8th 3 Unit 2: Solving Equations and Inequalities
Standard(s) Taught
 MAFS.912.A-CED.1.1: Create equations with one variable and use them to solve problems. MAFS.912.A-REI.1.1: Explain each step in solving a simple equation as following from the equality of numbers asserted at the previous step, starting from the assumption that the original equation has a solution. Construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.   MAFS.9.12.A-REI.2.3: Solve linear equations with one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.

MAFS.912.A-REI.2.4b: Solve quadratic equations in one variable.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
 ·         identify the variables and quantities represented in a real-world problem. ·         create one variable equations that best model the problem. ·         solve equations that model real-world problems. ·         apply order of operations and inverse operations to solve equations. ·         construct a viable argument (properties) to complete an algebraic proof to justify the steps of a solution and a solution method. ·         solve linear equations with one variable including equations with coefficients represented by letters. ·         solve equations using the zero product property.
