Reviewer Comments:

Content here is solving equations with 1 variable and no leading coefficient. The CRT notes that the slide show is set up to advance by mouse click but could be easily modified to accommodate properties of addition and equality. This is a good start to a beginning lesson about solving equations or even something advanced students could add too for enriched instruction.
