How are Systems of Equations related to Equations and Functions?

Unit 3: Systems of Equations
Lesson 6 of 13

Objective: Students will understand how a linear equation can be represented as a system of equations graphically. They will be able to write an equation as a system and solve it both algebraically and graphically showing that both solutions are the same.

Big Idea: Every equation is really a system of equations! Students don't usually see it that way but this lesson will help them to make that connection. Students will practice writing simple linear equations as a system of two functions and finding the solution bo
