This lesson teaches students how to read the equations in a way that promotes their understanding of mathematics as a written language. The methods taught promote understanding of the nature of Algebra and how it is related to the order of operations.
Students will learn to solve equations beginning with basic one or two step equations all of the way through rational equations with these reading techniques. It is quite powerful.
It is a two-day powerpoint with assignments at the end of each day. There are a few slides that are notes for the teacher and each slide has a notes section with information to help you conduct this lesson and promote the learning and understanding of students.
The powerpoint contains a few links for teachers that they can download and read, or distribute as notes for students.
