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.HSA.REI.1

Understand solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning.

Description

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. Construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.

Students will learn how to write linear equations to describe phenomenon.  Students will also learn how to solve equations in multiple steps including equations that have no solution or infinitely many solutions.

Grade: 

This unit will cover solving equations, including justifying the steps to those solutions using mathematical properties.  It also covers creating equations and using them to solve problems.  There is a link to a Google Doc that is the planning document for the unit, and it contains links to resources mentioned.  While this lesson does not yet contain loads of online resources/pra

Resource Type:

Grade: 

The students will get their first introduction to proofs. Since we are dealing with algebraic proofs, this is the first time students will be challenged to justify every step of solving an equation. They must start to think WHY along with HOW.
