Kuta Software is free software for math teachers that creates worksheets in a matter of minutes. There are a series of three videos to fully teach this concept. The videos are labeled Multi-Step Equations Part 1, Multi-Step Equations Part 2, and Multi-Step Equations Part 3. This video can be played to introduce a lesson on solving multi-step equations. The video is 8 minutes and 13 seconds in length.

Content Standard(s):

Mathematics MA2015 (2016) Grade: 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]

NAEP Framework

NAEP Statement:: 8A4a: Solve linear equations or inequalities (e.g., ax + b = c or ax + b = cx + d or ax + b > c).

Mathematics MA2015 (2016) Grade: 9-12 Algebra I

17 ) Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters. [A-REI3]

Alabama Alternate Achievement Standards

AAS Standard: M.AAS.A.HS.17- Solve an equation of the form ax + b = c where a, b, and c are positive whole numbers and the solution, x, is a positive whole number to represent a real-world problem.
