Lessons 7 and 8 pull together the concepts from the previous four lessons and engage students in simplifying complex expressions. In Lesson 7, students look at and discuss common misconceptions, and the problems become progressively more complex and challenging by the end of Lesson 8. Students will need to draw on their skills of computing with rational numbers from Unit 2.
If you need to adapt or shorten this lesson for remote learning, we suggest prioritizing Anchor Problem 1 (benefits from discussion) and Anchor Problem 2 (benefits from worked example). Find more guidance on adapting our math curriculum for remote learning here.

In math class, students are attempting to simplify the expression written on the board:
$${7-2(3-8x)}$$
Three students make an attempt at a first step:
Len writes: $${5(3-8x)}$$
Monty writes: $${7-2(-5x)}$$
Nailany writes: $${7-6-16x}$$
