Equations with Function Machines

The start of the lesson reviews understanding basic algebraic notation using always and sometimes true statements.  Throughout the development phase the teacher is provided with examples to model solving equations using function machines.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use function machines to solve equations in the form ax+b=c
  • Most students should be able to use function machines to solve equations in the form a/x + b = c
  • Some students should be able to use function machines to solve equations in the form a(x+b)=c
