Lesson Excerpt:

I. Introduction

- "We have just finished learning all about solving one step equations. Today, we are going to learn about how to solve two step equations."
- On Board: A Two Step Equation is an equation that has more than one operation in it.
- "When we were solving one step equations, we were solving equations by performing only one operation. If the problem was an addition problem, then we subtracted. If it was a multiplication problem, then we divided, and the opposite was true too. If it was subtraction, then we added, and if it was division, then we multiplied. Everybody remember this?"
- Look around and acknowledge that the students are following this. Then continue.
- "Now we are going to start solving two step equations. Two step equations have more than one operation in them, so we are going to need to perform more than one operation to solve them."
