Solving Linear Equations in One Variable (Grade 8)
This lesson set provides students with the opportunity to write and solve linear equations in one variable, focusing particular attention on what it means for a value to be in the solution set of a linear equation in one variable.
Through engaging in this lesson set, students will:
- determine whether or not a value is in the solution set of a linear equation in one variable;
- use the distributive property, collecting like terms, and properties of equality to simplify and solve linear equations in one variable; and
- classify linear equations as having no solution, a unique solution, or infinitely many solutions.
