Create a few Pi Day smiles with this solving systems of equations practice. Pick your method. Elimination or Substitution – find options for both. Pi Day themed answer message spices up regular practice and makes grading a snap!
The Pi Day Twist:
Students solve 15 random systems (out of 26 linear systems) before receiving the Pi Day Card
. Students use answers to decode the hidden message. Since the Pi Day Card is addressed “To My Wonderful Teacher,” students are essentially sending you, the teacher, the card when they turn in their work. “Oh what thoughtful students I have!
” 7 different corny or snarky messages discourage cheating.
Substitution, Basic Elimination, or Advanced Elimination – find three versions of the 26 systems practice page. All three versions have the same solutions. Therefore, you can easily use a combination of versions and meet students’ personal needs without any hiccup in the activity (if you want).
