This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 17, Unit 2, Grade 7. Review from Grade 6 solving 1-step and 2-step equations algebraically, as well as the application of the distributive property. The importance of undoing addition and multiplication to get 0 and 1(i.e., using the additive inverse undoes addition to get 0 and the multiplicative inverse undoes multiplication by a nonzero number to get 1) should be stressed. When solving an equation with parentheses, order of operations must be followed.
