# Unit 3: Equations & Inequalities

## Overview

Ever wondered how to teach solving equations and inequalities in an engaging way to your 7th-grade students?

In this unit plan, students will first learn about solving two-step equations with rational numbers. Later on, they will build on this knowledge to solve multi-step equations with variables on one side and both sides.

Each lesson helps students master the unit through artistic, interactive guided notes, check for understanding, and culminates with a real-life example that explores the practical application of equations and inequalities.
