Reflection: Adaptive Technology Addition and Subtraction One Step Equations - Section 3: Independent Practice


Additional resources for struggling students: A great resource for students who struggle with one step equations or just need more practice is Khan Academy. If you search for “one step equations” on Khan Academy, you will see that they break it down into “one step equations with addition and subtraction” and “one step equations with multiplication and division”.  This allows students to only work on the specific skill they need. I especially like this resource because students can do this independently. If students get stuck they can click on “I’d like a hint” as many times as they need until they can answer the question. Plus, students love a chance to get on the computer! 5 - 10 minutes of practice a day on Khan Academy has made a big difference for some of my struggling students.
