Ever wondered how to teach linear equations and systems of equations in an engaging way to your 8th-grade students?

In this unit plan, students will first learn about combining like terms and simplifying expressions. They will then progress to understanding two-step equations with rational numbers, including integers, decimals, and fractions.

Each lesson helps students master the unit through artistic, interactive guided notes, check for understanding, and culminates with a real life example that explores how linear equations and systems of equations are used in practical situations.
