Algebra 1

Equations

Learning to solve equations begins with simple equations in one variable and involves fundamental principles such as inverse properties and the concept of balance. The lessons in this unit illustrate the difference between expressions and equations, explore the additive inverse property, use a balance beam to solve equations, and examine the special cases in which the equation is an identity or for which the equation has no solution.
