# Solve Equations Math Games

In this series of games, your students will learn to solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r. The Solve Equations learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 7.EE.B.4.a as written in the common core national math standards.

**Concepts Covered**

Calculate using rational numbers (fractions, decimals, negative numbers, percents). Evaluate the reasonableness of a solution. Write equations to model real-life situations and then evaluate. Compare arithmetic and algebraic solutions.

Solve equations written in the form px + q = r fluently by first subtracting both sides by q then dividing both sides of the equation by p. Solve equations written in the form p(x + q) = r fluently. Write equations in the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r to solve problems. Solve both forms of equations.
