    This week I’m going to circle back to support my students with solving two step equations.

    I’m planning to use the Planning Flowers Revisited Task from MMM.

    Honestly, I’m a bit unsure about what strategies that they might try to use as I’m still struggling to determine the “where they came from” portion of their understanding. Given their vast and varied learning experiences of the past few years, there are definitely some gaps in conceptual understanding.

    If I know my students, I think they might use the concrete manipulatives with groups of three to model the solution. Others might try a skip counting method.

    I’m planning on highlighting the double number line and then exploring the algebraic representation during the consolidation.
