Big Idea:Once students understand that equations can be simplified to one solution, no solution, or infinitely many solutions, they can start to make sense of an equation's structure that cause these varying results.
Big Idea:Students analyze equations from the previous day's lesson to identify specific features that simplify to varying solutions. They then practice applying those structures to build their own equations.
Big Idea:Today, students will rotate through 5 stations that will review the major topics of this unit including solving linear equations, using distributive property, solving systems of equations by graphing, elimination, and substitution, and finally solving word
Big Idea:Students compete as a class against the teacher in an epic game of Battleship. They must solve linear equations and systems of equations as well as word problems that lead to systems of equations.
