Reflection: High Quality Task SUB! How can we use the properties of algebra to figure out the intersection of two lines WITHOUT graphing? (Day 3 of 3) - Section 2: Play of the Day

 

On the GOLD problem in this lesson, I wanted to assess student mastery across several standards, and so I introduced a real-life application of a systems problem (early in the unit, a benefit of leading with real-life applications rather than waiting until the end) but introduced the idea of unit conversion, emphasizing the idea that units must be the same for a system to be solved algebraically. 

See the two different student work samples in the resource section.

SUB! How can we use the properties of algebra to figure out the intersection of two lines WITHOUT graphing? (Day 3 of 3)

Unit 5: SYSTEMS OF LINEAR EQUATIONS
Lesson 5 of 19

Objective: SWBAT solve systems of linear equations by substitution.

Big Idea: More substitution! Get kids to isolate a variable BEFORE solving. Getting trickier...
