and flips over another problem card. His/her turn continues.
If the answer does not match the problem, turn the two cards back
over. Partner B then flips a different question card and repeats step 5.
Continue until all cards are paired up.

Anticipatory Set (focus question/s that will be used to get students thinking about the days lesson)
Recall from the previous two lessons:
What does it mean to solve systems of equations?
How are systems of equations applied in the real world?
How do we solve systems of equations graphically and algebraically?
Class discussion: teacher asks students to think about the three strategies.
How do you determine which method to use to solve systems of equations?
Activating Prior Knowledge (what information will be shared with/among students to connect to
prior knowledge/experience).
Review how to solve equations graphically.

Review how to solve equations algebraically with substitution or elimination.


Direct Instruction (input, modeling, check for understanding)
Step #1 Discuss the three methods students have learned for solving
systems of equations (graphing, substitution and elimination).
Ask student to refer to the vocabulary terms on the glossary page.
Inform students that today they will be using all three of the strategies they
learned for solving systems of equations to solve real life problems.
Step #2: Demonstrate how to solve the following example of a system of
equations graphically and by the substitution method.
Solve the following system of equations:
y = 7x 12 and 4x - 2y = 34
Check: y = 7(-1)-12
Substitution method:
y = - 19
4x - 2(7x-12) = 34
4x 14x + 24 = 34
Solution: (-1,-19)
-10x = 10
x = -1
Graph:

Step #3: Involve the students by asking them to help and guide you through
another example this time using the elimination method in order to check if
they understand what you have done so far.
y = 4x+1
y=x-5

Elimination Method:
y = 4x + 1
-(y = x - 5)
0 = 3x + 6
-6
-6
-6 = 3x
/3 /3
-2 = x
Check:
y = 4(-2) + 1
y = -2 - 5
y = -7
y = -7
Solution (-2, -7)
Step #4: Encourage students to ask questions. If students seem to have
successfully understood the new concepts, provide them with the formative

assessment (Candy Problem) to work on problems and practice what they


have just learned. Allow them to work together in groups for collaborative and
successful progress.
Guided Practice (how students will demonstrate their grasp of new learning)
Peer editing / tutoring: Students will exchange their formative assessment
(Candy Problem) with another group and review the other groups work /
solutions. Students will compare their work to the work done by the other group
and comment on similarities and differences. Students will work cooperatively
to ensure all groups have the correct solutions and understand the process
involved in getting to it.
Candy Problem (Real Life Example)
Ms. Rubino decided to purchase candy for her whole class. She bought
Skittles and Tootsie Rolls for their next exam. Each bag of Skittles cost $7.00
(including tax). The bag of Tootsie Rolls cost $8.50 (including tax). She ended
up spending $60.50 on her purchase of 8 items. (Elimination method)
1. Define the variables.
x = number of Skittles bags
y = number of Tootsie Roll bags
2. Write a system of equations to model the situation.
Items: x + y = 8
Cost: 7.00x + 8.50y = 60.50
3. How many bags of Skittles did Ms. Rubino buy?
Finding the number of Skittles bags means I should eliminate y since that is
the variable that defines Tootsie Roll bags.
x+y=8 (multiply this equation by -8.50 to eliminate y) -8.50x -8.50y = -68
7.00x + 8.50y = 60.50(nothing needs to change here)+7.00x + 8.50y = 60.50
-1.50x = -7.50
X=5
4. How many bags of Tootsie Rolls did Ms. Rubino buy?
Finding the number of Tootsie Roll bags means I should eliminate x since that
is the variable that defines Skittles bags.
x = y = 8 (multiply this equation by -7.00 to eliminate x) -7.00x -7.00y = -56
7.00x + 8.50y =60.50 (nothing needs to change here) +7.00x + 8.50y = 60.50
1.50y = 4.50
y=3

Independent Practice (what students will do to reinforce learning of the lesson)


For homework, students will independently complete a HW worksheet
(formative assessment) which will be reviewed the next day to ensure their
understanding.
Closure (action/statement by teacher designed to bring lesson presentation to an appropriate close)
Teacher will hand out an Exit Ticket (formative assessment) to each student.
Students will complete the problem before they leave the classroom.

Solve the following system of equations using one of the methods we learned.
y = 3x + 1 and 2x + y = 16
Check: y = 3(3) + 1
2x + (3x + 1) = 16
y = 10
5x + 1 = 16
5x = 15
Solution: (3,10)

Lesson 3 Glossary of Vocabulary Terms and Key


Concepts: Solving Systems of Equations
Coefficient- number (constant) that is multiplied by the variable; 3x has a coefficient of 3.
Graphing Method the equations in the system are graphed on the same coordinate graph to
find the points of intersection in the system.
Intersection- point where two lines cross.
Linear Equation- equation that when graphed will form a line.
Slope- rate at which the y value of a linear function rises or falls as x increases. (Rise / Run)
Solution of a System of Linear Equations- the ordered pair that makes both equations true at the
same time; point of intersection.
Substitution Method- method or strategy for solving a system of linear equations in which the
equivalent expression of a variable replaces or is substituted for that variable into the other
equation. It is used to reduce two equations with two unknowns to one equation with one

unknown. This method is best when one variable can be easily solved for in one of the
equations.
Systems of Linear Equations- two or more linear equations that use the same variables; used
when a situation requires the use of two or more variables and two or more equations to model
the situation and solve for more than one variable. A system will have as many equations as
there are variables in the system.
