## Solving Equations with more than one operation

#### Activity Overview

You have studied how to solve one-step equations. Now you are ready to explore the solution to the following type of equation: 5x ? 3 = 17

#### Before the Activity

If you are using the TI-Navigator System with the TI-73 you will need the attached .pdf file.
Send each question to individual students as a prompt in the activity center.

#### During the Activity

Students are then sent a point to place on the coordinate system to indicate the correct values of each step when solving the equation.

#### After the Activity

Review student results:

• As a class, discuss questions that appeared to be more challenging
• Re-teach concepts as necessary
