I created this inverse operations graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks at the beginning of our unit on solving equations.

The notes at the bottom were my attempt at helping my students who were having trouble determining if a number was being added, subtracted, or multiplied in an equation. I don’t know if it helped or not.

I just wanted to say this really helped my 7th grade students to understand the inverse operations as we introduce equations to them. And bonus- my admin LOVED the visual aid, and gave me praise for using this. Thank you for sharing such great resources.
