Math update - Systems of Linear Equations

posted May 7, 2017, 1:33 PM by Rebecca Tapley
Have you ever been stymied when comparing two cell phone data plans? Which is a better deal? Before long, the 8th grade students will be able to help you discover how to approach complex situations like this. We are learning all about systems of linear equations - those scenarios when you have two competing functions. Students have already learned to manipulate equations to put them into slope-intercept form and learned to identify solutions to an equation. Next up will be graphing to find solutions to a system and then exploring the substitution and elimination methods. Challenging experiences are ahead, which lead to incredible growth!
