Solving One Step Equations

              Solving One Step Equations

              Students learn how to solve a one-step equation using the balance method.

              To do this they are taught how opposite functions are used to keep an equation balanced while it is rearranged.

              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to recognise inverse operations such as + / - and × / ÷.
              • Most students should be able to solve a single step equation using the balance method.
              • Some students should be able to set up and solve an equation using known facts.
