Learning Objective

Students will be able to solve 1-step and 2-step equations and justify whether or not their solution is accurate. Students will also be able to explain what a solution to an equation is.


This duo of notes includes 19 total examples of identifying solutions and solving 1-step and 2-step equations! Prior to solving equations, students should have good foundational knowledge about what a solution to an equation even is. The "Solutions to an Equation" reference sheet does exactly that! The reference goes over the definition of a solution and then applies it in two examples. Students don't even need to know how to solve an equation to identify which value is a solution. After students are up to speed on what it means to be a solution, they're ready to move on to solving with the One-Step and Two-Step Equations Notes. 17 examples of solving 1-step and 2-step equations are included. Students are to check their solutions on the nine included two-step equations problems.

On the front side of the notes, examples using reciprocals are included to help students gain more comfort with a typically tricky type of problem. All examples have been thoughtfully chosen to generate discussions about misconceptions and common mistakes, and the notes themselves have been designed to fit perfectly in an interactive notebook.
