Solving Linear Equations: 'One-Step' Equations Solving One-Step Linear Equations (page 1 of 4) Sections: One-step equations, Multi-step equations, "No solution" and "all x" equations "Linear" equations are equations with just a plain old variable like "x", rather than something more complicated like x2 or x/y or square roots or such. Linear equations are the simplest equations that you'll deal with. You've probably already solved linear equations; you just didn't know it.

Fun with the Impossible Penrose Triangle I found this delightful animation today: The ball is traveling around a shape that can’t exist in our real world: the Penrose triangle. This illusion is the basis for some cool art, like Escher’s Waterfall. Maths Learning: Learn about Place Value of the Digits in a Number

What if we grouped the numbers... 9 Strategies for Motivating Students in Mathematics Motivating students to be (enthusiastically) receptive is one of the most important aspects of mathematics instruction and a critical aspect of the Common Core State Standards. Effective teachers should focus attention on the less interested students as well as the motivated ones. Presented in this blog post are nine techniques, based on intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, which can be used to motivate secondary school students in mathematics. Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation
