Reflection: Routines and Procedures Bring in the Sub!: Solving Systems of Equations in 2 Variables - Section 5: Exit Ticket


I like to use Exit Tickets as a classroom structure and routine to teach students the importance of recapping and reflecting on the day's lesson. I want students to become adept at thinking back about the day's lesson and identifying the overarching concepts for the lesson and how it fits into the bigger picture of the unit and the course.

For this particular Exit Ticket students are asked to solve a system of linear equations by substitution. The problem, like the entry ticket, also necessitates students to define variables and create equations. I purposively added this element to the exit ticket so I could have a pre/post assessment and check in on creating equations, as this is an area I have found that students tend to have difficulty with throughout the course of the school year.

Bring in the Sub!: Solving Systems of Equations in 2 Variables

Unit 4: Making Informed Decisions with Systems of Equations
Lesson 2 of 12

Objective: SWBAT define variables and create equations to understand systems of equations. SWBAT apply the substitution method to solve systems of equations. SWBAT connect to, build on, and challenge a partner's ideas.

Big Idea: Students complete group work on engaging real-world problems and provide constructive feedback to their peers through a gallery walk!
