Product Description
This document explains the process for solving one step equations in the form x + a = b, x - a = b, ax = b and a/x = b.

It is intended to be self-explanatory for students, but could be used by teachers/parents who are teaching this topic.

This lesson uses the "variable is a wrapped present that needs to be unwrapped" metaphor to explain how we choose which operation is necessary to solve for the variable in a one step equation. It also includes a small number of sample questions (8) first unsolved for student practice, then repeated with solutions so students can check their work.

It is handwritten on a tablet PC and uses colour to assist in the explanations. Although the colour is helpful, the file can be reproduced in black and white and is still useful.

At a later date, I may replace this file with one where the text has been typed up and only the solutions are handwritten. But for now, the entire document is handwritten.

UPDATE: My follow-up worksheet on solving two-step equations is now available! If you found this resource useful, then please take a look at it.
