# Q1 W4 Sept 21-Sept 25 Algebra 1 Teacher Stephanie Durrance Algebra 1 Honors 7th/8th 4 Unit 2 – Solving Equations and Inequalities
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.9.12.A-REI.2.3: Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.

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.912.A-CED.1.1: Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable including equations with coefficients represented by letters.
• apply order of operations and inverse operations to solve equations.
• given a multi-step algebraic equation, complete an algebraic proof to justify the steps of a solution and a solution method.
• identify the variables and quantities represented in a real-world problem.
• create one variable equations or inequalities that best models the problem.
• solve equations or inequalities that model real-world problems
