This resource will save you time as guided notes and examples are ready to be copied for your students. Independent practice is included in each activity. Teacher notes and detailed answer keys are provided
Sample pages of the resource can be viewed in the Preview.
1st Activity – Solve Equations with Tiles
This activity focuses on using manipulatives to solve one step equations. Students model the equation. Then they either add opposite tiles to get the variable by itself or they group the tiles to get the variable by itself. Students learn that solving an equation means to find the value of the variable.
2nd Activity – Inverse Operations
Each inverse operation is discussed. Students solve equations by using inverse operations.
3rd Activity – Graphing Solutions of Inequalities
Students must give multiple solutions of inequalities. They are led to see that inequalities have infinitely many solutions.
Students are introduced to greater than or equal to and less than or equal to. The two steps of graphing solutions of an inequality are presented. It is very important for students to know when the boundary point of an inequality is or is not included in the solution.
4th Activity – Write Inequalities
Students will write verbal expressions as algebraic expressions. "At most" and "at least" are given special attention.
