This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 4, Unit 6, Grade 6. The purpose of this activity is for students to practice solving equations by using the "do the same to each side" strategy they developed in their work with balanced hangers. Display an equation like 2x=12 or similar. Ask students to think about the balanced hangers of the last lesson and to recall how that helped us solve equations by doing the same to each side.
