 Number and Number Sense Computation and Estimation Measurement and Geometry Probability, Statistics, Patterns, Functions, and Algebra SOL Review Materials Frequently Asked Questions
 Patterns, Functions, and Algebra Focus: Variable Equations and Properties The student will solve one-step linear equations in one variable involving whole number coefficients and positive rational solutions. HCPS Course 1 Curriculum Guide
 Essential Knowledge and Skills Represent and solve a one-step equation, using a variety of concrete materials such as colored chips, algebra tiles, or weights on a balance scale. Solve a one-step equation by demonstrating the steps algebraically. Identify and use the following algebraic terms appropriately: equation, variable, expression, term, and coefficient. Essential Understandings When solving an equation, why is it necessary to perform the same operation on both sides of an equal sign? To maintain equality, an operation performed on one side of an equation must be performed on the other side.

1. Modeling One-Step Equations - Activity A: Solve one‑step equations using an area model. Drag tiles into two bins, each representing a side of the equation, and isolate an x‑tile on one side.
2. Modeling and Solving Two-Step Equations: Solve a two‑step equation using a cup‑and‑counter model. Use step‑by‑step feedback to diagnose and correct incorrect steps.
3. Solving Equations By Graphing Each Side: Solve an equation by graphing each side and finding the intersection of the lines. Vary the coefficients in the equation and explore how the graph changes in response.
4. Solving Two-Step Equations: Choose the correct steps to solve a two-step equation. Use the feedback to diagnose incorrect steps.

VDOE Interventions
1. VDOE Algebra Readiness Curriculum Companion: Investigating Patterns, Functions, and Algebra - The lessons focus on algebraic reasoning. Students explore the relationships found in number patterns through arithmetic and geometric sequences using variables expressions. Additionally, students learn to solve equations and inequalities, first by using manipulatives and then by working with symbols. They use modeling to collect data, and they learn to record data so that they can see the relationship that exists among tables, graphs, words, and equations. (pdf)
