Students will find solutions to linear equations with one variable.
Students will work with systems of equations using a mobile or balanced hanger framework.
Students will work with simple exponential equations.
Students will use these as tools to reason with math and the real world.
They will represent collections of equivalent ratios as equations and use them to make connections between tables, graphs, and linear equations. ```
```I have been completed three college-level courses on common-core math instruction. I have worked as a math instructor for middle school students in a private school setting. I have ten years of experience as a math tutor including working with students from ages 5 (kindergarten) to 25 (Graduate Readiness Exam).
