# Choose the best method to solve systems of equations

Unit 5: SYSTEMS OF LINEAR EQUATIONS

Lesson 12 of 19

Lesson 12 of 19

## Objective: SWBAT choose the best method to solve systems.

## Big Idea: Choose wisely, my friend. Get kids to get meta about which method to use when solving systems of linear equations.

Subject(s):

Math, Algebra, substitution method, Systems of Equations and Inequalities, elimination method, equation solving, systems of linear equations

#### Warm-up

*10 min*

Each day, students complete a warm-up 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.

For a video narrative about how I structure each lesson, and how the warm-up fits in, click here.

#### Homework

*15 min*

The homework file 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.
