This packet can be used as an introductory or review of one and two step equations. It begins by breaking down what an equation is, as well as what inverse operations are. It goes into giving steps to solving a one and two step equation, as well as gives the students an opportunity to solve two problems using steps. The second page is filled with guided practice. It gives the problem, asks questions to help students think about the next step to take, and then gives the student the opportunity to check his/her answer. The third page is an assessment to give the students an opportunity to show you what they've learned! Finally, this packet ends by giving a challenging activity for students who might fly through the rest of the work. The challenging part is made up of word problems. Students must write an equation and solve to find the answer.
