Teacher Kimberlie Hymes Honors Math 6th 21 Expressions and Equations
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.8.EE.3.7 a & b

Solve linear equations in one variable.
a. 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).
b. 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

• use the properties of real numbers to determine the solution of a linear equation
• 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 successfully transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form
x =a , a = a, or a = b (where a and
b are different numbers)
• simplify a linear equation by using the distributive property and/or combining like terms.
• solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.

Classroom Activities

This week we will be learning about how to solve one and two-step equations. We will be talking about linear equations in class and how to solve them including combining like terms and graphing these equations to show the relationship.

Assignments Due

Wednesday, 1-24 “Two-Step Equations” Homework Due (MathSpace)

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems.

Students are able to complete additional practice on both MathSpace and IXL.
