Get a complete, ready-to-print unit covering topics from the Algebra 1 TEKS including solving linear equations with variables on both sides that require the use of the distributive property to solve. Students also will solve linear inequalities and graph solutions on number lines.


Students will start the year off strong by increasing their ability to solve increasingly complex linear equations and inequalities.

Students will distribute and combine like terms to solve equations and inequalities with variables on both sides. Students also will learn how to solve by graphing and using tables on graphing calculators.

This unit jumps straight into the Algebra 1 standards by building on students' previous knowledge of solving linear equations.

These no-prep resources include 7 lessons with guided notes, an exit ticket, a next-day warm-up, and 2 extra practice assignments per lesson.  The unit also includes mid-unit and end-of-unit reviews, mid-unit and end-of-unit editable assessments, and concept organizers. Increase student engagement with 5 TEKS-aligned activities!


TEACHERS LOVE the worked-out keys included with the lessons notes. Feel confident delivering instruction on these sometimes tricky topics! It is a major time-saver if you don’t have quite enough time to create your own guided notes key for the day.

STUDENTS LOVE the reduced note-taking burden with the guided notes handouts. Fill-in-the-blank vocabulary improves the accuracy of students’ notes and frees up more time for showing mathematical steps. 

TEACHERS LOVE the multiple versions of each practice worksheet, review, and assessment and they take full advantage of the EDITABLE versions of the mid-unit assessment form and unit test.

STUDENTS LOVE the complementary concept organizers that help them organize concepts and procedures.  

TEACHERS LOVE the pre-made exit tickets and next-day warm-ups that support skills from every lesson in the unit. Print 4-per-page or project on the board and record answers on scratch paper!

STUDENTS LOVE the variety of fun and engaging activities!  


Most resources are in non-editable PDF format.

  • Editable versions of the mid-unit assessment and test are also included in .docx format for MS Word.
  • 5 digital activities compatible with Google Slides and Google Classroom™ are included.
  • Printable versions of the digital activities are included in PDF format.

You need a free Google account to access the digital activities, add the digital activities to your Google Drive™, or assign the digital activities using Google Classroom.


Lesson 1: Simplifying Linear Expressions

Students will:

  • identify key parts of algebraic expressions such as terms, variables, constants, and coefficients
  • distribute and combine like terms to simplify linear expressions

Lesson 2: Linear Equations and Algebraic Properties

Students will:

  • solve linear equations with variables on one side that require the use of the distributive property and combining like terms to solve
  • connect algebraic properties such as the properties of equality to solving linear equations

Lesson 3: Multi-Step Linear Equations

Students will:

  • solve linear equations with variables on both sides that require the use of the distributive property and combining like terms to solve

Lesson 4: Literal Equations

Students will:

  • solve literal equations for a specified variable including 2-variable linear equations, mathematical formulas, and scientific formulas

Lesson 5: Solving Linear Equations Using Technology

Students will:

  • solve multi-step linear equations with variables on both sides in multiple ways including graphing, tables, and algebraic methods

Lesson 6: Multi-Step Linear Inequalities

Students will:

  • solve linear inequalities with variables on both sides that require the use of the distributive property and combining like terms to solve

Lesson 7: Applications of Linear Equations and Inequalities

Students will:

  • write and solve multi-step linear equations and inequalities
  • interpret solutions within the context of applied situations


  • The Lesson Notes are designed for use as a note-taking guide combined with guided practice.
  • Practice A and Practice B are suitable for use as in-class practice and homework. Two comparable forms are included for increased versatility.
  • The Exit Ticket is designed for a quick concept check at the end of the class period.
  • The Warm-Up is designed for next-day use to reinforce the previous day’s learning.
  • One-page display versions of the exit ticket and warm-up are included. Display the PDF page on a screen for student viewing and have students record their responses on notebook paper or scratch paper to save on printing.


  • 3 Concept Organizers offer complimentary alternatives for note-taking or post-lesson concept reinforcement.
  • The Mid-Unit Review (Forms A and B) provides an opportunity for students to practice the concepts they learned in the first part of the unit.
  • The Mid-Unit Assessment (Forms A and B) may be used as a test, quiz, or daily assignment to meet the specific needs of your students. Editable versions of Forms A and B are included as a .docx file for MS Word.
  • The Unit Review (Forms A and B) helps students focus on the key concepts studied throughout the unit.
  • The Unit Test (Forms A, B, and C) comes in two comparable multiple-choice forms (A and B) and one free-response form (C). The test key includes TEKS alignment for each question to facilitate easy data analysis. Editable versions of Forms A and B are included as a .docx file for MS Word.



Printable versions of each activity are also included in PDF form.

This unit and activity bundle is perfect for providing a complete TEKS-aligned unit or for supplementing existing resources. Use every resource or pick-and-choose from the many options to meet the needs of your students!


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “This curriculum is perfect for teaching the Texas Algebra 1 TEKS!”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Fabulous resource! It is such a time saver.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I absolutely love Math Beach Solutions. It is more rigorous than the state standardized test so gives students all the skills they need to be successful on both the EOC and in future high school math classes. Allison is extremely helpful and her work is beautiful and well organized!”


Supports Algebra 1 Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)

Standards: A.5A, A.5B, A.10A, A.10B, A.12E

A note from Allison at Math Beach Solutions about standards alignment: This resource was designed from the ground up to provide ready-made resources for Texas teachers to implement to facilitate their students’ mastery of the Algebra 1 TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills TAC §111.39). A considerable effort has been made to ensure the TEKS are addressed thoroughly, but these resources will reflect my understanding of the TEKS. As always, continue to use your professional judgment and experience when lesson planning.
