Solving Two-Step Equations
What does the order of operations have to do with solving equations? Quite a bit, as it turns out. In this lesson, Kate uses the order of operations to explain why we solve two-step equations the way we do.
STEP 1: WATCH THE VIRTUAL CLASS VIDEO AND TAKE NOTES
Make sure to note the following:
Simplifying and solving are opposite procedures. Because of this, you actually work the order of operations BACKWARDS when solving equations.

STEP 2: COMPLETE ONE LEVEL OF PRACTICE
Solve two-step equations involving whole numbers and the basic operations.
