# Access Point #: MAFS.7.EE.2.AP.4a

Set up equations with one variable based on real-world problems.
Clarifications:

#### Essential Understandings

Concrete:

• Use manipulatives to represent quantities in an equation in the form px + q = r from a word problem using a graphic organizer.
Representation:
• Create a pictorial array of a simple equation to translate wording.
• Enter information into an equation in the form px + q = r from a word problem to determine the unknown.
• When given a scenario, understand which quantity is unknown and would be represented by a variable.
• Understand the following concepts, vocabulary, and symbols: +, -, ×, ÷, =, ≠, <, >, equation, equal, inequality.
General Information
Number: MAFS.7.EE.2.AP.4a
Category: Access Points
Cluster: Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations. (Major Cluster)

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
