### Lesson Excerpt:

I. Introduction

- "Today, we are going to start working on a new type of equation. But before we do that, let's just take a minute and review how we solve a two step equation."

- Here is an example for us to work with:

- On Board: 7x + 3 = -25

- Note: This section has been written as a narrative, but encouraging student participation is a great thing. It allows you to assess student recall and understanding as well as application.

- "Now, in solving this equation, the first thing we need to do is to get rid of everything not associated with the variable x. We perform the opposite operation to do this."
