This lesson is based on the systems of equations lesson from the LAUSD instructional guide.
These prior concepts are being built on/reinforced:
The new concept being introduced/combined with the above is different scaling of the different axes.
To this end, the suggestion is to start off with a whole class discussion of just the graph displayed on a transparency or via projector.
Then the worksheet is worked on in groups, with prompts given by the teacher to each group as appropriate.
- Deriving equations from graphs
- Solving systems of equations
- Analyzing word problems.
