Students will display their knowledge and understanding with regard to solving multi-step equations in a variety of different contexts (multi-step w/like terms and/or distributive property, multi-step w/variables on both sides, special case solutions, and word problem examples). Furthermore, teachers can use the students' responses from the "Tangram Showcase" page in order to create a digital gallery walk where peer-to-peer feedback could take place and top three designs could be awarded.
