Justifying the Solutions to Linear Equations

Unit 3: Solving Linear Equations
Lesson 8 of 12

Objective: SWBAT explain each step in solving a simple equation as following from the equality of numbers asserted at the previous step, starting from the assumption that the original equation has a solution, and construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.

Big Idea: When students choose the levels of equations that they'd like to dig into, everyone learns what they need to learn.
