Linear equations may appear confusing at first glance, but there’s a very clear logic to them once you understand how they work. In this program, we use a variety of fun and engaging real-world examples to provide an engaging context to bring linear equations to life. Using guess, check and improve, balance, and backtracking methods for solving equations, the program takes students through the process of finding numerical solutions to various types of single variable linear equations, including ones with fractions and inequalities.
