These can be used as stations or activity cards. There are 7 situations where students need to:
Write an equation
Solve using inverse operations
Substitute to verify their solutions.
This is focused practice to strengthen this specific skill.
The activity cards are designed to be cut in half, and there is a coversheet. All solutions are worked out. There are extra problems on a sheet at the end, use them in context for a mini lesson, a closing, exit ticket etc... etc...
Understand solving an equation or inequality as a process of answering a question: which values from a specified set, if any, make the equation or inequality true? Use substitution to determine whether a given number in a specified set makes an equation or inequality true.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form x + p = q and px = q for cases in which p, q and x are all nonnegative rational numbers.
