SWBAT solve real-life systems of linear equations by graphing.

Big Idea

Systems of linear equations can be used to solve real-life problems!

Warm-up

10 minutes

Each day, students complete a warm-up that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material.  Today's Warm-up problems (WU61) also extend the goals of yesterday's lesson.

A quick note - today's BRONZE problems are from Coach New York Grade 8.
