In this lesson on Absolute Value, students learn how to solve absolute value equations for the variable. They start with isolating the absolute value, and then either use the step-by-step method or the stop and think about it method to solve the equation. The stop and think about it method involves visualizing the distance from zero to the center, which makes it easier to graph on a number line and find the boundaries for the answer. This lesson also covers how to write an equation that satisfies both the greater than or equal to and less than or equal to conditions.
