In this episode, students will learn how to solve basic equations. This lesson introduces a method for solving relatively simple linear equations of one variable, starting with simple equations such as 3x = 15 and x + 5 = 11 and eventually moving on to equations such as 3(x + 5) - 6x = 11 - 2x + 8. The importance of checking answers using the original equation is emphasized throughout the lesson. Grades 3-7. 30 minutes on DVD.
