Students use this, along with their notes, to deconstruct the problems.
Hey you! Yes You! Need a better way to introduce equations? Here's a whole unit

Do you like Literal Equations? Of course you do! I always had a hard time finding practice that contained both simple and challenging problems, so I made it! Here's some fun practice!
Like videos? Me too! Here's something fun about division of fractions.
