Algebra I

October 5, 2012

The Algebra I students have been working on solving equations for particular variables.  This math skill is one of the most important skills in mathematics.  The students are working on understanding what solutions are and how to find them.  The steps for solving these equations are a balancing act.  They have to keep both sides of the equal sign balanced, like weights on a scale.  Another aspect of solving equations is that students have the ability to check their solutions that they get.  This ability to check their solutions increases the learning and depth of knowledge of the content.
