Grade 8 Algebra I
Teacher Neill Dixon

In this abbreviated week, we review our properties of equality to solve for a variable. We will then step up the fun by solving for a variable that’s represented on both sides of the equal sign. Finally, the icing on the cake, everyone’s favorite, we will examine real-world situations which necessitate solving variables on two sides – and will construct our own scenarios to challenge our fellow students.
