Subject AreaPre-Algebra
Grade Level8th
Week #Week 6, Sept. 21 - 24
Unit of InstructionSolving Mult-Step Equations (Focus 4)
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.8.EE.3.7  Solve linear equations in one variable

b. Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms

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 similar forms until an equivalent equation of the form x=a, a=a, or a=b results (where a and b are different numbers).

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • Simplify equations using distributive property, combining like terms, and inverse operations.
  • Solve multi-step linear equations with rational number coefficients.
  • Solve a linear equation with one solution, no solution, and infinitely many solutions.
  • Explain when an equation has one solution, no solution, and infinitely many solutions.
