Big Ideas: Equations with a single variable on both sides of the equal sign can be simplified by using inverse operations. Equations that simplify to the form x = a have only one solution. This lesson is intended to introduce students to linear equations with variables on both sides. Students will use speed and time traveled to determine distance. This lesson uses integers for practice. Students will have an opportunity to work similar problems with decimals and fractions in Lesson 10 of this set. All problems in this lesson have one solution. Vocabulary: solution
