Each day, students complete a Warmup that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material.  Today's warm-up problems extend the practice with modeling and solving systems of equations that students have encountered during Day 1 and 2 of this sequence of lessons.

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.
