Open Up Resources 40 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students continue to reinforce the circle connecting three fundamental ideas: a solution to an equation is a number that makes the equation true, performing the same operation on each side of an equation maintains the equality in the equation, and therefore two equations related by such a move have the same solutions. Understand that there can be multiple correct paths to solve a linear equation. Let's rewrite some more equations while keeping the same solutions. Learning targets: students can make sense of multiple ways to solve an equation.
