# Solving Linear Equations

**ProjectALessons**

These are lessons to be taken ‘off the shelf’. Each ppt contains an explanation, several different tasks, a problem solving task and a learning check. These require no printing.

These were the first ‘ProjectALessons’ I did, so the quality may not be as great as some others.

I think I will edit these with ideas in Ed Southall’s ‘Yes but why?’ book and the Dani Quinn Mr Barton Maths podcast. She starts with equations like or similar, so students cannot do them by inspection and MUST use balance, even for ‘easy’ questions. Each lesson here could easily be two with support materials.

Unknowns on one side only: Ronseal.

Unknowns on both sides: I’ve tried to add lots of examples.

Solving equations with brackets: Brackets on one side and brackets on both sides.

Equations with fractions: Probably needs more questions at the higher end.

**Assess**

I absolutely love your lessons and often use them in my lessons so thank you for all your hard work! I was just wondering about a few of the slideshows in the solving linear equation section as I think they’ve been linked to a percentages lesson accidentally!

I will investigate today.
