Is It True? Error Analysis Format:
This product includes 20 individual tasks to practice solving linear equations. Each task includes space to decide (yes/no) whether or not it has been solved correctly and then space to provide a justification for their choice.
The first 10 tasks include equations with 1 or 2 steps to solve.
The last 10 tasks include multi-step equations, including combining like terms and the distributive property.
Choose to assign tasks that fit your students grade and ability level.
A handful of the tasks are evaluated correctly, so that students don’t always assume it must be wrong and truly take time to analyze the problem.
