Using a problem involving the perimeter of a rectangle, Sal Khan demonstrates how to solve for a variable (the width of the perimeter). . Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. (06:58) There is a lot of information... on the screen--the viewer may want to open the video to 'full screen.'[more]

In this video, Sal Khan demonstrates how to solve 20-7x=6x-6. Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points.

This lesson will teach how to solve any multiple steps Linear Equations using distributive properties and the operations concepts. And the same time you learn how to solve formulas which are an application of multiple steps linear equations. (30:18)

This animated "Math Shorts" illustrates linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. This video was made for the PBS LearningMedia library, thanks to a generous grant from the Corporation for Public ...Broadcasting. It was produced in collaboration with Utah Education Network.
Common Core State Standards: CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.C.7a (Grade 8): Understand that solutions to a system of two linear equations in two variables correspond to points of intersection of their graphs, because points of intersection satisfy both equations simultaneously. (02:05)[more]

In this video segment from Cyberchase, Jackie, Matt, and Inez try to move a stack of slabs blocking a doorway. They decide to use a long board as a lever, but they soon realize they need a longer board in order to move the heavy slabs. The problem is... that they are not sure exactly how long the lever should be. Since they do not have the time to try out levers of varying lengths, Inez decides to construct a scale model. While testing their model levers, they learn about the relationship between the length of a lever and its lifting capability. (4mins)[more]

The presenter in this video explains how to solve multi-step equations using an example problem in which she explicitly shows every step involved. (02:21)

The presenter in this clip, explains basic linear equations; what they are and how to solve them. He works through a couple of simple examples. This would be a good video for students to watch independently for extra reinforcement. (02:49)

In this video, the presenter explains how to solve an equation with one variable as well as a fraction. This is an advanced problem for solving equations with a single variable. (01:49)
