CHECK OUT WHAT EDUCATORS ARE SAYING

My students were very engaged with the material, keeping the class focused and learning important skills like critical thinking.

I loved having something that was theme related to use as review on Valentine's Day. Even though kids saw it as "fun", I saw it as a great way to sneak in some extra equations practice

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Solve word problems leading to equations of the form 𝘱𝘹 + 𝘲 = 𝘳 and 𝘱(𝘹 + 𝘲) = 𝘳, where 𝘱, 𝘲, and 𝘳 are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?
