We had a quiz today (here it is: Solving Equations Quiz). I’ll be returning it tomorrow; we looked at the solutions today.

You’ll be having a test on these skills this Wednesday. Tomorrow in class I’ll hand out the following skills summary along with a bunch of questions to help you review. You are welcome to look at/print out the skills summary on your own, or you can wait for the lovely yellow booklet I’ll give you tomorrow:

Skills Summary – Solving Equations

Tonight’s homework was to practise solving equations according to your needs. Most of you chose to work on equations that included fractions; I gave some that required the distributive property as well. You still have the bazillion questions labelled “8.5” at the top of the page if you need more.

Hi Mr. Grasley this is Joshua. I was wondering how I would go about getting more practice sheets, like online or something. Thanks

Hi Joshua,

For worksheets you can look at these sites:

http://www.mathworksheets4kids.com/equations/

https://www.kutasoftware.com/free.html

http://www.math-aids.com/Algebra/Algebra_1/Equations/

It can be tricky to make sure you’re getting the kinds of equations you want. Look for “2-step equations”, fractions, etc. You don’t want stuff that says “quadratic” – that’s for grade 10.

If you want online practice, you can try these:

Thanks a lot. I just want to practice as much as possible before the test.
