Reasoning about Equations and Tape Diagrams (Part 2) Solve equations of the form using a tape diagram or by reasoning about the value that would make the equation true. Use tape diagrams to understand that there are situations that can be represented by an equation of the diven form. Let's use tape diagrams to help answer questions about situations where the equation has parentheses. Learning targets: students can draw a tape diagram to represent a situation where there is more than one copy of the same sum and explain what the parts of the diagram represent.
