FLIP BOOK / FOLDABLE: Elimination, Substitution and Graphing to Solve Systems of Equations.

TpT Purchaser feedback:

"Students really loved it. The silliest things make a lesson fun! Thanks for the great resource :)"

"Bought last year for review - am going to use a lot earlier this year! Thank you!"

Students fill in an 8 page booklet which summarizes the FIVE types of Solving Systems: Solving by Graphing, Solving by Elimination (2 types) and Solving by Substitution (2 types).

NOTE: The resource has the template and the questions written on the template, students fill in the solutions with guidance from the teacher or independently. An answer key is provided. Also, best to use 11 x 17 paper, all photocopiers

have the function to enlarge from 8.5 x 11 to 11 x 17, it makes it easier for the students to fill in the foldable.

This product includes:

* Rationale: how to use the product in the classroom.

* Practical Tips for Teachers.

* EDITABLE foldable handout for students (PowerPoint File)

* full answer key

* BONUS: Instructions for folding the 8 page foldable, can be used on a SmartBoard when

instructing the students. Click here to download the { FREEBIE }

NOTE: I recommend enlarging to 11" x 17" for a larger foldable, you can do this option on most photocopiers. You can print and use as 8.5 x 11, but some students may have difficulty fitting all the math into the space


This Flipbook covers:


Solving systems of equations by plotting on the Cartesian plane - one example is given on the foldable, students rearrange the equations, then plot on a grid provided on the foldable.


Solving systems of equations using

TYPE 1 One equation has the x or y variable isolated, students fill in the solution.

TYPE 2 Neither equation has a variable isolated, student must isolate the variable from the first equation, then sub into the second equation.


Type 1 Given 2 equations add or subtract to eliminate variable

Type 2 One of the equations must be multiplied by a factor before you can add or subtract them to eliminate the variable.


Use as:

* Review at the end of Solving equations unit.

* Recap at the end of each lesson on Solving Systems.

* Exam review assignment.


Equipment needed:

* one copy of the Flipbook template for each student.

* one pair of scissor for each student

* enlarge to 11 x 17 for a larger foldable, you can do this option on most photocopiers

* you can use it on 8.5 x 11, but students with larger handwriting may have a challenge fitting all information on the foldable

Solve systems of linear equations exactly and approximately (e.g., with graphs), focusing on pairs of linear equations in two variables.
Prove that, given a system of two equations in two variables, replacing one equation by the sum of that equation and a multiple of the other produces a system with the same solutions.
Solve systems of two linear equations in two variables algebraically, and estimate solutions by graphing the equations. Solve simple cases by inspection. For example, 3๐˜น + 2๐˜บ = 5 and 3๐˜น + 2๐˜บ = 6 have no solution because 3๐˜น + 2๐˜บ cannot simultaneously be 5 and 6.
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.
Analyze and solve pairs of simultaneous linear equations.
