Problem Solving in Mathematics
Problem Solving in Mathematics. Part of the series: Math Equations, Fractions; Problem Solving. To problem solve in mathematics, take each problem step-by-step, expand the problem for more clarity and be meticulous with each stage of the problem. Solve equations, formulas and other math are exlained in this four minute video. This video moves very rapidly and so a replay and stopping the video may be of value.
Solving One-Step Equations
Equations are fundamental to Algebra, and solving one step equations is necessary for students in order to learn how to solve two-step equations, and other multi-step equations. This video clip explains the difference between an equation and an expression. (1:15)
Solving Two-Step Equations
Solving two-step equations will help introduce students to solving equations in multiple steps, a skill necessary in Algebra I and II. This video explains how to solve these types of equations by using additive and multiplicative inverses to isolate and solve for the variable. (00:46)
