This worksheet features 3 columns, the first column being a more challenging multi-step equation with integers only.
The second column asks for a step-by-step description of what procedure was used to solve the equation. This is will be used to help students solve the equation in the third column, which is set up exactly the same except with fractions. The directions clearly indicate that students may use the same steps in both equations except may have to apply previous knowledge of fractions to the second equation.
This is a great Common Core resource because you are getting students to explain and compare the steps of solving equations with and without fractions.
