This article is written for middle school students to learn about the linear systems of equations. It is brief (one page), but will give your students experience with linear systems that have one solutions, no solution, and infinite solutions. This can be used in station rotations or with a whole class. I have included directions and activity sheets for a partner reading activity and small group summarizing.

Analyze and solve pairs of simultaneous linear equations.
Understand that solutions to a system of two linear equations in two variables correspond to points of intersection of their graphs, because points of intersection satisfy both equations simultaneously.
Solve systems of two linear equations in two variables algebraically, and estimate solutions by graphing the equations. Solve simple cases by inspection. For example, 3x + 2y = 5 and 3x + 2y = 6 have no solution because 3x + 2y cannot simultaneously be 5 and 6.
