**8th Grade, CC3, Unit 3**

**What is x?**

Chapter OutlineSection 3.1 In this section, students will add to existing graphing skills. They will learn new graphing skills and strategies that will help throughout the rest of 8th grade. They will learn how to create tables, writes rules, and draw graphs to represent situations and patterns. Section 3.1 In this sections, students will extend the work they did in Chapter 2, learning how to solve linear equations without using algebra tiles. They will also learn the significance of solutions.

Guiding Questions- What is a variable?
- What is the pattern?
- How many different ways can I represent it?
- How can I solve it?
- How can I check my answer?
Classroom HandoutsAll Methods & Meanings are available in the textbook. For classroom notes and other handouts, talk to your teacher. Standards8. EE. 7a Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form x = a, a = a, or a = b results. 8. EE. 7b Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms. |
