Ever wondered how to teach multi-step equations with variables on one side and both sides in an engaging way to your eighth-grade students?
In this lesson plan, students will learn about solving multi-step equations with variables on one side and both sides and their real-life applications. They will solve these equations by combining like terms and using the distributive property. Through artistic and interactive guided notes, checks for understanding, a doodle, color by number activity, and a maze worksheet, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of multi-step equations.
The lesson culminates with a real-life example that explores how multi-step equations can be used in practical situations. Students will read and write about real-life uses of multi-step equations, connecting the math concepts to the real world.
With this lesson plan, students will not only develop their problem-solving skills but also engage with the content in a creative and enjoyable way. They will be able to apply their knowledge of multi-step equations to real-life situations, making the math concepts more relevant and meaningful.
