Unit 5: SYSTEMS OF LINEAR EQUATIONS

Lesson 13 of 19

Lesson 13 of 19

## Objective: SWBAT solve systems of equations modeling real-life situations (Day 1 of 5)

## Big Idea: How can we use systems of linear equations in real-life systems? Get kids to understand the "break-even" point and apply algebra to the real world.

Subject(s):

Math, Algebra, Systems of Equations and Inequalities, problem solving, systems of equations, real world applications

#### Warm-up

*10 min*

Each day, students complete a Warmup that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material. Warm-up problems also sometimes extend lessons that students have encountered before to more unfamiliar contexts.

Algebra I » Systems of Equations

Big Idea:
The reason systems of equations exist as an algebra topic is that they're a tool to be used when a problem has more than one unknown variable.
