Course 5 of NHPT
Fading Friends: Solving Multi-Step Equations
“Fading Friends” is all about telling the zeros (additive inverses) from the ones (multiplicative inverses)….or in other words, discerning those fake friends from the one that will stand by you until the end. See what happens when groups of friends just cannot reach a solution at all!
Course Skill Sets, Objectives, and Essential Questions
Skill Set 1
Understanding Zeros and Ones
To solve one-step and multi-step linear equations
How do you determine the number that will eventually become one by the end of the problem?
Skill Set 2
Solving Equations with Fractions and Decimals
To solve linear equations with rational coefficients
How exactly do fractions prove to be the one by the variable in the end?
Skill Set 3
Solving Equations with Two or More Terms on Each Side
To solve linear equations involving collecting like terms on both sides
What steps are required from beginning to end to solve a linear equation with like terms on each side?
Skill Set 4
Solving Equations with Parentheses
To solve linear equations involving distributive property
What steps are required from beginning to end to solve a linear equation involving parentheses?
Skill Set 5
Solving Equations with the Variable on Both Sides
To solve linear equations with the variable on both sides

Skill Set 6
Determining the Number of Solutions
To solve linear equations with one solution, no solution, or infinitely many solutions
How can you determine when a linear equation has one solution, no solution, or infinitely many solutions?
