Justify through algebraic proof the process for solving multi-step linear equations.

You are able to explain verbally or through written work how to solve a linear equation with algebraic steps.

3.0

Understand the process for solving multi-step equations and inequalities (using algebraic properties).

You can solve multi-step equations using algebraic properties (commutative, distributive, associative). You are able to solve word problems of the form px+q>r or p(x+q)<r where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers.

2.0

Knows the terms: solution, no solution, identity, algebraic properties, identity for addition/multiplication, properties of equality, multiplicative property of zero, property of reciprocals, and additive inverse.

You are able to define and give examples of the terms: solution, no solution and identity. Identify algebraic properties: identify for addition/multiplication, properties of equality, multiplication property of zero, property of reciprocals, and additive inverse.
