AIM: What are some strategies for solving linear equations?
HW: Moving Straight Ahead p. 71, #12, 14
a) 3x + 6 = 4x + 5 b) 6x + 3 = 3x + 12
Classwork: We are still in the process of transitioning from pictorial representations of equations to algebraic representations with numbers and variables. Today's lesson focused on maintaining equality and using inverse operations to isolate variables. We again used pictures with bags and coins and steps to solve to connect the same steps to solve algebraic equations. More to come next week!
