Course 8 of NHPT
The Point of It All: Solving Systems of Linear Equations
“The Point of It All” strives to show students how much diverse people can actually have in common. Students examine the different paths of individuals, place numbers in each other’s shoes, and overlook minor differences all in the attempt to make a connection and find the points they share!
Course Skill Sets, Objectives, and Essential Questions
Skill Set 1
Solving Systems of Linear Equations Using Graphing
To solve a system of linear equations using graphing
What does the solution of a system represent?
Skill Set 2
Solving Systems of Linear Equations Using Substitution
To solve a system of linear equations using substitution
Given a system of linear equations, how can one determine which variable to isolate at the beginning of the substitution process?
Skill Set 3
Solving Systems By Elimination Using Addition and Subtraction
To solve a system of linear equations with addition or subtraction
Once one coordinate of a point is found during elimination, how can the other coordinate be determined?
Skill Set 4
Solving Systems By Elimination Using Multiplication
To solve a system of linear equations with multiplication
How can terms in a system obtain the same coefficient, and how does this process affect each of the equations?
