Reflection: Complex Tasks Finding the Feasible Region - Section 1: Opening


There is an opportunity in this lesson for students to see a graph as a powerful tool that can make their lives easier. I really like how the curriculum builds up to this task of putting all of the graphs together to find on feasible region. I want to emphasize to students that this is really powerful and saves a lot of time and effort. Imagine that we can visualize all of the constraints we've been working with in one place.  I want students to recognize that although often laborious, sometimes graphs are the best way to go!

Finding the Feasible Region

Unit 3: Systems of Equations and Inequalities
Lesson 5 of 17

Objective: SWBAT construct a feasible region by coloring the set of points that fits each constraint.

Big Idea: How can we see multiple constraints at one time? Students create a single graph that shows combinations that fit four different constraints.
