Lesson Description: Graphing Systems of Equations is a math lesson that requires students to read sentences, translate them into equations, and use t-tables to graph at least 5 ordered pairs for each equation. Students then graph these linear equations. Finally, they determine the slope, y-intercept, and the solution to each system of equations. Three different systems of equations and blank templates for creating your own systems of equations are included.
Math Content: Writing Equations, Using T-Tables, Graphing Ordered Pairs, Graphing Linear Equations, Finding the Slope of a Line, Determining the y-intercept, and Solving Systems of Equations.
Time Required: 1-2 Class Periods
Graphing Systems of Equations includes:
3 Graphing Systems of Equations worksheets
3 Graphing Systems of Equations worksheet Answer Keys
2 Graphing Systems of Equations Templates (with different scales) to create your own worksheets
2 Graphing Systems of Equations Teacher Tips page
1 Graphing Systems of Equations Cover Sheet
Materials Needed: Rulers (to draw lines when graphing equations)
Suggested Grade Level: 5th-8th
Teacher Testimonial: Graphing Systems of Equations is an active, high-interest lesson that allows students to solve systems of equations by graphing. I recently used this lesson with a group of students who had not previously been taught to use t-tables, to graph equations, to find the slope of a line and its y-intercept, or to find the solution for a system of equations. The students were fully engaged and very successful in their initial exposure to these important concepts. Best of all, this lesson, like all others on Digital Lesson.com, is "Print and Present". No need to create handouts. No graph paper needed.
"...Systems of Equations which was great. I taught the lesson traditionally first, then used your lesson as a follow up and to include a few story problems for the blank pages. The activity helped students make the connections between the t-table, recognizing the slope and y-intercept from the table, and connecting it back to the graph and equation. I had a lot of success with that assignment."
