**Warmup**

Try to beat your own record to solve two-step equations with no fractions!

**Activity #1**

Locate Negative Numbers on a Number Line.

The point, **P**, is located on the number line.

- Use the colored circles to locate the new positions described. You will see a comment when you find the correct location.
- When done, click on for new problem.

**Activity #2**

Compare Equation Solutions.

Here are some equations that all have the same solution.

- Study the equations and answer the proceeding questions.

(1.) Explain how you know that each equation has the same solution as the previous equation.

(2.) Start with the equation **-5 = *** x.* Do the same thing to each side at least three times to create an equation that has the same solution as the starting equation.

**Activity #3**

Explore Addition and Subtracted of Directed numbers.

In the applet below, 2 numbers have been selected by default; -2 and 8. No operation (+ or -) has been chosen. Before you choose an operation, follow the instructions below.

- Using the slider, move the first number, a, to the left or right. You will see a move along the x-axis. Then the number, 8 is added or subtracted.
- Using the slider, move the second number, b, to the left or right. The number will be added or subtracted from 2.
- To explore only addition OR subtraction, check the box you want on or off.

**Challenge #1**

**Challenge #2**
