Print Lesson


SWBAT solve systems of equations modeling real-life situations (Day 2 of 5)

Big Idea

More application of systems to real-life! Give kids even more practice with finding and interpreting the break-even point.

Each day, students complete a Warmup that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material.  Today's task is a single multiple choice problem, but it challenges students to demonstrate understanding of systems of equations.

The Homework 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.  

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