This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 13, Unit 4, Grade 8. This activity represents the first time students solve a system of equations using algebraic methods. They first match systems of equations to their graphs and then calculate the solutions to each system. The purpose of matching is so students have a way to check that their algebraic solutions are correct, but not to shortcut the algebraic process since the graphs themselves do not include enough detail to accurately guess the coordinates of the solution.
