Monday
Understanding that equivalent equations are equations that have the same solution(s). One can find the solution of a onestep equation using the properties of equality and inverse operations to write a simpler equivalent equation.
Pass out Kuta Handout on solving onestep, linear equations. (# 114).

Introduce Properties of Various Operations
Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division

Guided Practice: Evaluate some simple onestep equations (page 85, Lesson Check).

Independent Practice: Students will examine and solve #’s 1021 (using addition or subtraction) & #’s 2637 (using multiplication and division)
Lesson Vocabulary:

Equivalent equations

Addition Property of Equality

Subtraction Property of Equality
 < >

Multiplication Property of Equality

Division Property of Equality
Tuesday
To solve twostep equations, one can use the properties of equality and inverse operations to form a series of simpler equivalent equations. Identify the operations and undo them using inverse operations.
Hand in Kuta worksheet previously assigned on Monday night for HW. Answer any particular questions students might have had from the worksheet.

Introducing Lesson
Problem 114, page 8990.
Teach students to solve twostep equations by using an equation as a model (Problem 2), solving with two terms in the numerator, and via deductive reasoning.

Guided Practice: Page 91, #’s 11, 23, 26, and 34.
Independent Practice: Students work from textbook to solve #’s 1222 (even), 24, 2632 (even), and 34, 36.
Wednesday

Review the concepts previously introduced in solving one and two step, linear equations.Ensure that students understand the fundamentals of both Sections 2.1 and 2.2.Clarify any concepts that need clarification and work more examples to illustrate the idea.

Have students look at additional examples of twostep equations on page 92.Work together to solve #’s 3846, 51, and 52 (Error Analysis).

Direct Instruction: Introduce Solving MultiStep Equations,
Problems 15 (pages 9597).

Guided Practice:Page 97, Lesson Check.Randomly select several students to go to the board and solve problems 14 and 69.

Independent Practice: Assign #’s 1014, 19, 2125, 3035, 3943, 4550, and 56.
Thursday
Solve multistep equations, one would form a series of simpler equivalent equations. To do this, use the properties of equality, inverse operations, and properties of real numbers. You can use the properties until you isolate the variable.

Direct Instruction: Introduce solving multistep equations.Discuss the meaning of combining “like terms.”Review Distributive Property and solving an equation using distributive property.Look at expressions that contain fractions.

Guided Practice: Page 97 (Lesson Check, #14, and 68, page 99 #56 and 57.)
Independent Practice: Page 98, assign students problems to solve: (#’s 1018, even, 19, 2228, even, 3038,even, and 4044, even). For additional practice, students can also look at the odd problem sets.
Friday

Guided Practice: Review one, two, multistep equations. Work a few examples of each type: page 115 (110).

Assessment: Give exam on one, two, multistep equations.
Direct Instruction: Introduce solving equations with variables on both sides (page 102, Section 24).
