UPDATED 9/30/2019: This flipbook is now easier to print and assemble. This updated flipbook now fits within student notebooks.

This Flipbook helps students remember the steps for solving a multi-step equation using the acronym,

Don't (Distribute)

Call (Combine Like Terms)

Me (Move the Variable to One Side of the Equation)

After (undo any Addition or Subtraction)

Midnight (undo any Multiplication or Division)

Each tab of the foldable contains the information for the previous tab so students do not need to rewrite the step for every tab.

Printing and Assembly Directions

1. Print the pages single-sided
2. Cut-out each tab
3. Align the tabs in order stacked on top of each other
4. Take the top Cover tab and fold along the line
5. Put the remaining tabs in the fold
6. Staple along the top and enjoy!

Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.
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.
Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. For example: If a woman making \$25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or \$2.50, for a new salary of \$27.50. If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation.
