              Equations with Fractions

              At the start of the lesson students recap solving equations where the unknown appears on one side of the equals sign.  The development phase builds on this by considering equations involving the unknown on both sides in the form of fractions.  By finding the lowest common multiple students are able to solve these equations using the balance method.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to solve equations involving fractions using the balance method.
              • Most students should be able to solve equations involving addition and subtraction of fractions.
              • Some students should be able to recognise equations that will lead to quadratics.
