STAAR / EOC: Are All Equations Created Equal?

Activity Overview

The student is expected to use mathematical properties to simplify equivalent equations.

Before the Activity

See the attached activity DOC file(s) for detailed instructions for this activity.

During the Activity

Follow the procedures outlined in the Activity. Students will:

  • Be able to use mathematical properties and the graphing calculator to determine if equations are equivalent.  Students will understand that equations can be written in multiple forms and still have the same meaning.

After the Activity

Review student answers:

  • As a class, discuss questions that arise during the activity
  • Re-teach concepts as necessary
