1 Hook/Attention Getter
Write a 5 question Kahoot to review the previous lesson or prior knowledge.
Review vocabulary terms: constants (integers) and variables
Rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing intergers.
Solving one step equations using addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. For example: x + 5 = 6
Given the operation, use the opposite operation to solve the problem. If addition use subtraction to solve or if multiplication use division to solve and vice versa.
Answer the kahoot review questions.
2 Direct Instruction
Board examples will be demonstrated
3x + 4 = 19
Step 1. Identify the operation and use the opposite to move the constant to the other side.
Step 2. Combine like terms
