Two-Step Equations - Guided Notes
This resource includes two half pages of guided notes for two-step equations. The interactive notes focus on using the properties of equality to solve equations. Each page has an opening question in which the students examine an equation and determine how it is different from previous equations. They are also given the opportunity to explain how they would solve it. The notes provide four examples of different types of two-step equations. One example has a negative coefficient and another example has a fractional coefficient. Students can be encouraged to use a colored pencil to highlight the number being added/subtracted/multiplied or divided to each side of the equation. By doing this, students will see the equation remains balanced and the variable is isolated. Students are also given space to check their answers. Answer keys are included.
