# Day 3: 3.2.1 (alg tiles) March 15,16

**Essential Questions: **How can I represent an equation?

**Standards/PIs: **

- A-REI.1 I can explain each step in solving a simple equation as following from the equality of numbers asserted at the previous step, starting from the assumption that the original equation has a solution. Construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.
