Unit of InstructionFocus 2: Solving Multi-step Equations
Standard(s) Taught


Solve linear equations in one variable.

  1. Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions.  Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms until an equivalent equation of the form x=a, a=a or a=b results (where a and b are different numbers).
  2. 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


  • explain the differences between one solution, no solution, and infinitely many.
  • solve a linear equation with one solution, no solution, and infinitely many.


  • simplify equations using distributive property, combining like terms, and inverse operations.
  • solve multi-step linear equations with rational number coefficients.

Assessment Limits:

  • Numbers in items will be rational numbers.
Classroom Activities


  1. Multi-step equations word problem task cards – match up the word problem with the correct equation, answer for x, and number line.
