Solving Equations With Unknowns on both Sides Version 2 (notebook only)

2 lessons:

Lesson objectives:
To solve equations with unknowns on both sides, including equations with brackets.

Includes; teachers notes on how to use the interactive elements, step by step guide, worked examples and practice questions.

The big idea is to rewrite both sides of the equation to eliminate like terms. Hence the phrase “Same Value, Looks Different”. It uses money to show that you can can have the same value, but in different ways. Hence, you can rewrite any equation in any way as long as you do not change the value.

This version 2 is designed to allow both teachers and students to solve the example equations by writing each step on an interactive whiteboard. (Version 1 has each step written done to be uncovered as the example goes on).
