Chapter 5 Lesson 2 – One Step Equations

Welcome to lesson 2 on equations.  I can’t stress how important this lesson is to your ability to solve equations.  Most certainly basic equations will be on the GED exam as equations are central to basic high school level math.  The concepts are not difficult however this lesson is the start of a lot of procedures you will learn about equations- you will need a good memory and good notes to stay on track.  As in all chapters do not proceed to the next lesson until you really understand these new skills.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

•  what a one step equations is
•  what an inverse operation is
•  the steps to solve various one step equations using inverse operations
•  the importance of neatness in mathematics

Do you make a lot of mistakes?  That’s good because it shows you’re taking action and it’s only through action can we reach our goals.

Nice work you finished lesson 2 on equations. Here are some things you should be able to do:

* solve a one step equation

* have a clear understanding of inverse operations

* be able to show all your work in a neat manner

Now that you mastered one step equations it’s time to build up your skills by learning two step equations.

Hello John, I am writing to thank you. During the Summer I took and passed all of my GED courses with the exception of the Math test. I found your free math course online and listened and watched all of the videos, trying to educate myself utilizing the tools and tips that you provided. I have to admit, it was very overwhelming and at times I felt as though I was being taught in a foreign language. I scheduled my re-test earlier this week and I passed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It took me 22 years to feel confident enough to achieve this goal and I am forever grateful to you for offering this information online. You are heaven sent! Now I can apply for better paying jobs and attend college. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping others change their lives for the better!!” Sincerely, Alicia
