Objective

SWBAT solve a system of linear and quadratic functions algebraically.

Big Idea

Use substitution and "making zeroes" to solve systems of linear and quadratic functions algebraically.

Warm-up

10 minutes

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.

Today's warm-up, because students differ so much in their speeds in finishing graphing tasks, has a bonus question for the early finishers to extend their knowledge.  It's not necessary in my class for all kids to do the second problem.

This homework assignment is a bit of a confidence builder, but as we approach the end of the unit, confidence is important:
