# Chapter 3: Single Variable Equations and Inequalities

## Introduction

In Math 8, the learning content is divided into Concepts. Each Concept is whole and complete providing focused learning on an indicated objective. Real-world Concepts involve the student in the learning objective of each Concept. Students are given opportunities to practice skills through real-world situations, examples, guided practice and independent practice sections. There are video links provided for Concept connections with technology. In this Chapter, students will engage with a variety of material including solving one-step equations, solving two-step equations, solving equations using the distributive property and by combining like terms, solving equations with variables on both sides of the equation, solving inequalities using the four operations, solving equations including rational numbers and using equations and inequalities to solve real-world dilemmas.
