Reflection: Intervention and Extension SUPPLEMENT: Linear Programming Application Day 1 of 2 - Section 2: Investigation


Some students will need an outline of the steps they follow to complete a linear programming problem. They can also refer back to the last lesson where they solved for the number of cats and dogs.  An extension problem where one of the constraints is changed from the original problem is an appropriate addition to this activity.

SUPPLEMENT: Linear Programming Application Day 1 of 2

Unit 3: Systems of Equations and Inequalities
Lesson 13 of 17

Objective: SWBAT write inequalities using constraints, graph inequalities and identify a feasible region, write a profit function, and find maximum profit.

Big Idea: This lesson gives students the opportunity to synthesize what they have learned before they begin to create their own linear programming problems.
