A mini-unit is just that, a smaller unit that covers a concept in 2-3 days. This mini unit has everything you need to teach Equations with variables on both sides of the equals sign as well as Two Step Equations.

The abstract nature of using variables in equations is a puzzle to so many students and breaking it down to the conceptual basic form makes it click.

This mini unit includes:

- Equations with Variables on Both Sides Flippable
- Equations Practice
- Equations Practice Answer Key
- Two Step Equations Flippable
- Equations Task Cards (sheet of 16)
- Equations Task Cards Answer Keys

Aligned to TEKS 7.5a and 7.5b as well as Common Core State Standards (CCSS) 6.EE.9 and 7.EE.4a.

Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation. For example, in a problem involving motion at constant speed, list and graph ordered pairs of distances and times, and write the equation 𝘥 = 65𝘵 to represent the relationship between distance and time.
Solve word problems leading to equations of the form 𝘱𝘹 + 𝘲 = 𝘳 and 𝘱(𝘹 + 𝘲) = 𝘳, where 𝘱, 𝘲, and 𝘳 are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?
