Unit 4, Lesson 12# Systems of Equations

Open Up Resources 40 min(s)

Learning targets: students can explain the solution to a system of equations in a real-world context. Provide access to straightedges for students to accurately draw graphs of lines. Students recognize that they have found solutions to systems of equations using graphing in the past few lessons by examining the intersection of graphed lines. The next activity introduces students to a system that has no solution and asks them to recognize this by connecting the concepts of parallel lines having no intersection points to the algebraic representations having no common solution.
