# Elimination 4 - multiply one equation only

Lesson 10 of 19

## Objective: SWBAT solve linear systems of equations using elimination, Day 4.

#### Warm-up

*10 min*

WU69 Elimination is similar to yesterday's challenging warm-up.

I sometimes like to include similar tasks two days in a row, to give kids "two bites of the apple." as their understanding develops. I feel the second day really solidifies a learning, so that not every day feels like a foreign task. In this case, students should apply the more efficient method of substitution of the coordinates to solve.

A new wrinkle is to ask early finishers to "prove" that if you solve the system you chose using elimination or substitution, it would yield the given coordinate point, which is a way to check your work (and also to demonstrate the beauty and symmetry of mathematics :)).

#### Homework

*15 min*

The homework file is a resource that generally includes 5-7 problems that consist of problems related to this lesson, as well as spiraled review. I also give the kids the answers to the problems.

We sometimes give HW break packets to students over long breaks. In this case, I chose sample problems that were multi-step, and good illustrations of the key standards we have learned thus far in the school year.

Sometimes, the HW file is a take-home assessment.
