# Ch 3: Analyze & Solve Linear Equations: CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.C

Share video lessons with your students in their study of linear equations. Use the short, multiple-choice quizzes that follow each lesson to test their progress.

Standard: Analyze and solve linear equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations.

Students who have mastered this standard are able to combine like terms and simplify expressions. They also can write equations based on essential information.

Lessons in this standard address concepts such as:

• Understanding commutative, associate and distributive properties in algebraic expressions
• Strategies for problem solving with linear equations
• Tips for using systems of equations

Students show they've mastered this standard by writing linear equations and solving problems involving systems of equations. They also understand how to deal with negative signs while simplifying algebraic expressions. Mastery of this standard provides a basis for higher-level algebra coursework in college and for encountering real-world math problems leading to two linear equations in two variables.

### How to Use These Lessons in Your Classroom

Here are some tips for using these lessons to support instruction in the CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.C standard:

#### Real-World Math Lessons

Share the video Problem Solving using Linear Equations with your class. Review the practice problem examples. Organize students into small groups and challenge them to design additional real-world linear equation problems, writing their solutions on separate pages. After determining validity, exchange problems between groups and ask them to solve.

#### Systems of Equations Math Practice Lessons

After watching the video lesson pertaining to solving problems involving systems of equations, review the counting, money and percent practice problems. Ask students to independently solve an additional set of similar problems.

#### Review Math Lessons

Ask students to complete all lesson quizzes. Reflect on any concepts requiring additional study. Group your students by quiz results for review and retesting. Students who demonstrated mastery earlier on might serve as student tutors or mentors for others.
