This poster displays use of all 4 properties of equality (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) and the distributive property while solving a linear equation in one variable.
-Properties of Equality Poster with steps and properties (word and PDF versions)
-Properties of Equality Poster with equations only (word and PDF versions)
This document can have multiple uses.
i)Print as a reference sheet for students to use during solving linear equations in Algebra 1
ii)Print as a poster for your classroom
iii)Chart the solution of this equation as a class discussion/anchor chart activity [5-7 minute classroom activity] (e.g. Consider the colored writing as the key for the chart).
I print the bare bones of the chart with all of the equations and have students determine the property of equality/arithmetic step that occurred to get from one equation to the next. Write in the steps and property of equality names when reviewing this objective in class then post the filled anchor chart in the room.
