Are your students struggling with Systems of Equations? My algebra students could use a lot of extra practice with this concept. It takes a while for their brains to go through the same steps that mine do as a teacher. I created this study guide to help "wire" their brains for solving systems of equations. The worksheet starts out simple and just gets them to look at the problem and develop a game plan. By the end they are choosing their own method of elimination.
Many teachers show multiple elimination techniques. I personally like to teach the kids that they can either add or subtract entire equations. Some teachers prefer to teach them to always add equations but to multiply through with a negative ahead of time. The key is written with the assumption that they could either add or subtract.
The key shows every single step so that you could reproduce it for your students if you think it would help.
More systems of equations materials will be uploaded shortly.. Be sure to check out my "Systems of Equations" notes as well. I would also appreciate any feedback you would be willing to leave.
Thanks for looking! Happy teaching!
