    Lesson Portion (Digital and Printable)

    In “present mode”, use the built in transitions to make learning easier through step by step instructions and interactive algebra tile demonstrations. Students will learn:

    • Essential vocabulary: Equation, constant, variable, isolating the variable, opposite operation
    • Skills for solving 1 step equations (e.g., a + 6 = 68 or 4a = 16)
    • Building on these skills in order to solve 2 step equations (e.g., e + 3 = 7 - 3 or 5f = 28 - 3)
    • Building on these skills in order to solve 3 step equations (3g - 3 = 22 + 2 or 6 x 3 = 5b + 3)
    • Building on these skills in order to solve multi part equations (e.g., If 5 + a = 13 and  2b + 3a = 50, Solve for b)
    • Steps for double checking your work
    • Solving tips (makes a GREAT anchor chart for the the virtual or in-person classroom)

    Practice Portion for Math Centers (Digital and Printable)

    Task cards: Includes 5 different levels!

    • 1 step 
    • 2 step
    • 3 step 
    • More complex 3 step
    • Multiple part equations

    Each level allows students to practice one concept at a time, while checking their work with the provided answers. Perfect for at home learning or as a math center.

    Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
    Use appropriate tools strategically. Mathematically proficient students consider the available tools when solving a mathematical problem. These tools might include pencil and paper, concrete models, a ruler, a protractor, a calculator, a spreadsheet, a computer algebra system, a statistical package, or dynamic geometry software. Proficient students are sufficiently familiar with tools appropriate for their grade or course to make sound decisions about when each of these tools might be helpful, recognizing both the insight to be gained and their limitations. For example, mathematically proficient high school students analyze graphs of functions and solutions generated using a graphing calculator. They detect possible errors by strategically using estimation and other mathematical knowledge. When making mathematical models, they know that technology can enable them to visualize the results of varying assumptions, explore consequences, and compare predictions with data. Mathematically proficient students at various grade levels are able to identify relevant external mathematical resources, such as digital content located on a website, and use them to pose or solve problems. They are able to use technological tools to explore and deepen their understanding of concepts.
