Monday: Simplifying Algebraic Expressions- Combining like terms; **HOMEWORK**– Watch One-Step Equations video lesson.

Tuesday: Solving one-step equations; We will discuss prior knowledge of solving one and two-step equations, including vocabulary including inverse operations, additive inverses, and multiplicative inverses. **HOMEWORK-** Worksheet

Wednesday: Quiz over One-step equations; Today’s objective is for students to model and solve two-step equations with algebra tiles. Entry activity- watch the video on how to use algebra tiles. **HOMEWORK**-Watch video on Using Algebra tiles to Solve Equations and place the notes sheet in your journal. This assignment is due TOMORROW. **This is homework if not finished in class. See me in the morning at 7:30am if you need help. **

Thursday:** **Today’s objective is for students solve two-step equations algebraically without tiles. Students will work task cards in groups to practice solving two-step equations. Task cards will include the use of multiplicative inverses as opposed to division in order to “undo” multiplication by a fraction.

Friday: ** **Students, you will practice skills from Wednesday and Thursday by completing Punchline worksheet pg. 44- Solving Two-Step Equations.
