Lesson Objective
Students will apply knowledge of number relations and solving equations in order to solve 2 step equations.
Lesson Plan
Engagement (Warm up)3 min.:
Quick Write: What is the most important this to remember when solving equations?
( What yo u do to one side, you do to the other side of the equation.
Exploration ( Self Guided):
Not needed because of the previous lesson on Solving 1 Step Equations.
Explanation (Instructional) 15 min.:
Explain to students that 2 step equations are similar to 1 step equations with the exception of having another operation.
 The objective is to get the varaible alone on one side of the equation.
 Opposite operations have to be used to move numbers from one side of the equation to the other side of the equation.
 What is done to one side, must be done to the other side.
 Check work by substituting value for the variable.
Example: 3x+4= 10
1. Subtract 4 from both sides (3x= 6)
2. Divide by 3 from both sides (x=2)
3. Check your work by plugging in the variable.
3(2)+ 4 = 10
Elaboration (Independent) 15 min.:
Students will have time to practice solving 2 step equations. During this time, teacher should be walking around and offering assistance to any students that will need clarification or further explanation.
