This worksheet uses the visual of a balance to represent 6 equations. Students must write the equation represented and solve it for the variable. There is a key identifying the objects used on the scale.
The second half of this worksheet is explaining, in words, what you would do to solve some equations. Then, there is a short section evaluating how students feel about equations and their ability to solve them.
The equations represented include 2-step, fractions, and combining/distributing. There are no equations with variables on two sides of the equality.
