Reflection: Modeling Solving Linear Systems of Equations with Substitution (Day 3 of 3) - Section 3: Guided Notes + Practice


From this lesson I’ve concluded students need to draw a visual representation for these word problems. If there isn’t a way for students to process what the problem entails they will struggle to see what's going on. Reading comp is important so I collaborated with my fellow ELA teachers to get tips on how to teach stu to analyze the word problems. Having students use the language from the word problems to interpret what they solved for verses saying x=2, saying there are two of whatever item is in the word problem. It is important for them to understand the answer in the context of the problem to ensure their answer is reasonable.
