This graphic organizer got my struggling students solving equations within an hour. Through a series of guided questions, your students will learn the process of solving equations with variables on the left, on the right, on both sides and two or more like terms on one side.
This graphic organizer focuses on the + and - signs in equations, which I have found makes solving easier for students who are having trouble. Students first identify the = sign, then find which side of the equation has addition or subtraction. Students are then guided to identify the term on that side that is a like term to the term on the other side and eliminate it.
