This WebQuest focuses on solving one-step equations.
Objectives: The students will be able to
1. Identify inverse properties.
2. Write sentences as equations.
3. Solve one-step linear equations in one variable with strategies involving inverse operations and integers.
4. Solve practical problems requiring the solution of a one-step linear equation.
