Understand solving an equation or inequality as a process of answering a question: which values from a specified set, if any, make the equation or inequality true? Use substitution to determine whether a given number in a specified set makes an equation or inequality true.
Big Idea:Paul Pierce made 14 more points than Kevin Garnett. Let k represent Kevin Garnett’s points. Write an expression to show how many points Pierce made. If Pierce made 26 points, how many points did Garnett make? Students work on writing and solving equat
Big Idea:For the equation y = 3x + 4, if y is 25 what must x equal? Students work with input-output tables and then work together to create equations, tables, and graphs to represent various situations.
Big Idea:What are the similarities and differences between expressions, equations, and inequalities? What do students understand? What gaps do they have in their understanding? Students review and take the quiz.
