              Solving Two Step Equations

              Using the balance method students are taught how to solve two-step equations involving multiplications and divisions.At the start of the lesson students recap how to solve one step equations.  In the main part they learn how to use the method and inverse operations to solve a two-step equation.  The plenary challenges students to match various equations with their solutions.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able solve equations involving a multiplication and addition.
              • Most students should be able to solve equations involving divisions and multiplications.
              • Some students should be able to solve equations where the unknown is presented as a negative.
