Solving equations can be difficult and it becomes more of a challenge when 'x' is negative. In this class, students will be guided through a balancing method before applying it to solving equations where 'x' is positive so they feel confident using it. Once students practice with equations where 'x' is positive, students will solve equations where 'x' is negative. This class is great for students in Years 7 - 11 who learn best by practicing and working through problems!
