Algebra 1 - Linear Equations and the Distributive Property

Updated: Feb 15

This post explains and give practice opportunities related to TEKS A.5A:

solve linear equations in one variable, including those for which the application of the distributive property is necessary and for which variables are included on both sides


Students practice the steps needed to solve an equation that requires the use of the distributive property and possibly has variables on both sides of the equal sign.

Here are some activities you can use to teach this standard.


STAAR Practice

Between 2016 and 2023 (including redesign practice), this readiness standard has been tested 15 times on the STAAR test. Videos explaining the problems can be found below. If you'd rather take a quiz over these questions, click here. The videos below are linked to the questions in the quiz as answer explanations after the quiz is submitted.
