Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.EE.7b

Analyze and solve linear equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations.

Description

Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.

The lesson on triangle sum theorem, exterior angle theorem and parallel line relationships revolved around the online teaching tool Quizlet live.  I used this technology as a review of the concepts before they took a quiz as a reinforcement of the material.

Resource Type: 
Content Area: 
Grade: 

Students practice the distributive property with variables on both sides.  They make a recap of a given problem.  Students must discuss with their group how to do the problem and then use appropriate math language as they complete the problem.
