I came up with the “Gift Analogy” as a way to ensure that students solve two-step equations in the correct order. It has truly made a difference and I am no longer frustrated with students thinking they must undo the multiplication/division first. The “Gift Analogy” has greatly increased student retention of solving two-step equations. It makes me smile to hear students say, “No, you need to remove the “wrapping paper” first.
