It’s nice to be back in a unit that we’ve taught many times before (this is, I think, the only unit we teach every year).
A stray Google comment by Curriculum Partner on 2 year’s ago lesson plan reminds us that our original reading guide was somewhat clunky. We go through and revise the questions to focus on one workable problem each.
Kiddos are still stymied by the idea of getting X alone (as we call isolating the variable) and most of them refer to it as “making the equation easier”. Which, true, but still confusing.
