Videos, solutions, and lessons to help Grade 6 students learn how to solve real-world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form x + p = q and px = q for cases in which pq and x are all nonnegative rational numbers.

Common Core: 6.EE.7

### Suggested Learning Targets

• I can define an inverse operation.
• I can use inverse operations to solve one step variable equations.
• I can apply rules of the form x + p = q and px = q, for cases in which p, q and x are all nonnegative rational numbers, to solve real world and mathematical problems. (There is only one unknown quantity).
• I can develop a rule for solving one-step equations using inverse operations with
nonnegative rational coefficients.
• I can solve and write equations for real-world mathematical problems containing one
unknown. I can solve real world problems using equations.
