 Name: Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities: Further Techniques in Equation Solving ID: m21992 Language: English (en) Summary: This module is from Elementary Algebra by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. In this chapter, the emphasis is on the mechanics of equation solving, which clearly explains how to isolate a variable. The goal is to help the student feel more comfortable with solving applied problems. Ample opportunity is provided for the student to practice translating words to symbols, which is an important part of the "Five-Step Method" of solving applied problems (discussed in modules ((Reference)) and ((Reference))). Objectives of this module: be comfortable with combining techniques in equation solving, be able to recognize identities and contradictions.
