              Equations with the Unknown on Both Sides

              At the start of the lesson students review solving a two step linear equation using the balance method.  The development phase extends their learning by introducing equations where the unknown appears on both sides.  As students become more proficient the equations progress to include brackets and fractions. 
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to solve equations with the unknown on both sides
              • Most students should be able to solve equations with the unknown on both sides involving brackets.
              • Some students should be able to solve equations with the unknown on both sides involving fractions and brackets.
