Product Description

How often do your students get confused when trying to solve a literal equation? It's like all of the rules of Algebra are completely forgotten. This activity will help your students see both a regular equation and a literal equation side-by-side. After they solve the regular equation, the literal equation beside it will be solved similarly. This way students can compare the similarities in solving these types of equations.

This resource also includes an activity that uses writing in math. Students choose one of the problems to solve and write in words what they did in a step-by-step format.

A rubric for the math words activity and an answer sheet are also included.

This resource includes:

  • 24 Regular and Literal Equations for students to solve and compare
  • My Math in Words Suggested Instructions
  • My Math in Words Student Sheet
  • Student Answer Sheet
  • Rubric
  • Answer Key
  • Color and B/W copies
