Product Description

Complex Equations with Variables on Both Sides

Word Problems with Variables on Both Sides

Equations with Infinitely Many Solutions and No Solution

Equations with Geometry

Rearranging Formulas

When to use:

I recommend thoroughly teaching equations and how to solve with variables on both sides before this activity. Students should be able to simplify, distribute, and combine like terms as well.

Showing students infinitely many solutions or no solution examples beforehand is optional. Teaching rearranging formulas is also optional. They can experiment and learn about these through the activity, or gain a deeper understanding.

At each center, students will work with their partner to follow the steps and solve problems. Check the preview to see what is involved at each center.

Recommended Time:

About 15 - 20 minutes per center (depending on students). Each center instructs students to check their answers at the end. Answer keys are included.

Common Core Standards

CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.C.7

Solve linear equations in one variable.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.C.7.a

Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form x = a, a = a, or a = b results (where a and b are different numbers).

CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.C.7.b

Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSA.CED.A.1

Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSA.CED.A.4

Rearrange formulas to highlight a quantity of interest, using the same reasoning as in solving equations. For example, rearrange Ohm's law V = IR to highlight resistance R.
