Solving Linear Equations with Coefficients – Playlist and Teaching Notes

In this playlist, students explore standard 8.EE.C.7.B. They learn how to solve linear equations with rational number coefficients. Students are guided through examples of how to solve linear equations that require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms. Students apply what they learned by using the distributive property to simplify expressions and solve linear equations in one variable. Students also have the option to view instructional videos and complete practice quizzes or activities.

The playlist includes:
• Link to a practice activity
• Links to five instructional videos or texts
• Definitions of key terms, such as coefficient and distributive property
• Explanations of how to solve complex problems using inverse operations to transform the equation and isolate the variable

Accompanying Teaching Notes include:
• Links to additional resources for extra practice
• Links to video tutorials for students struggling with certain parts of the standard, such as making errors applying the distributive property, combining like terms, and choosing incorrect inverse operations
