Requirements

Students explore two real-life scenarios that involve solving systems of equations. The first situation involves mixing chemicals to create a new solution while the second situation involves cost and revenue for a bake sale. Exploring these situations allows students to see a real-world connection with mathematics. By the end of this lesson, students will have a greater understanding of how using mathematics to model a real-life situation with two variables can help them solve problems. This is the sixth of seven activities for teaching and learning linear equations in algebra: Ski Slope; y=mx+b; Points, Intercepts, and Slopes, Oh My!; Linear Word Problems; Solving Systems of Equation by Graphing; Systems of Equations Word Problems Part 1; Systems of Equations Word Problems Part 2.

» Lesson Plan and Student Assessment documents are also available.
