"Solving Multi-step equations" is a podcast created using a portable whiteboard device  to illustrate 8th Grade standard #9 (Solve linear equations in one variable). In this podcast, students are introduced to the following vocabulary terms: coefficient, constant, variable, distribute, and term, and inverse operations.  This podcast allows students to work out an example with the narrator following the steps.  Once students have worked the example, they may pause the video to try an example on their own.  This podcast would work well for students who need examples to see at home while attempting their homework.

MA2015 (8)
9. Solve linear equations in one variable. [8-EE7]
a. Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms until an equivalent equation of the form x = a, a = a, or a = b results (where a and b are different numbers). [8-EE7a]
b. Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions, using the distributive property and collecting like terms. [8-EE7b]
