Over 30 worksheets! If you are searching for a source of linear equations for your students, this is the comprehensive source. Students will begin with one step equations and proceed through subsequent incremental levels until they are solving multi-step problems (involving distribution and combining like terms) with success. Each level begins with positive whole number solutions before introducing negative and fractional solutions. Equations involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are featured sequentially so students can build skills while maintaining comprehension. Each new level is introduced with a visual approach using only positive whole numbers. Then the student is led into more rigorous content involving negative whole numbers and fractions. As students progress, the visual model eventually gives way to more abstract and efficient representations.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.
Solve simple rational and radical equations in one variable, and give examples showing how extraneous solutions may arise.
Explain each step in solving a simple equation as following from the equality of numbers asserted at the previous step, starting from the assumption that the original equation has a solution. Construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.
Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.
Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form 𝘹 = 𝘢, 𝘢 = 𝘢, or 𝘢 = 𝘣 results (where 𝘢 and 𝘣 are different numbers).
