This graphic organizer was created to have students practice solving multi-step equations using pictures (figures on a balance/scale) and algebraically (symbolically). If a student can do or sees solving an equation more visually, the student will better understand how to solve equations and make less mistakes.
This graphic organizer shows a pictorial solution of a multi-step equation and provides a space for the student to solve another problem. The graphic organizer also shows solving a multi-step equation algebraically and provides space to solve a different multi-step equation. The examples are next to the work space for the student to carry out the process.
