Practice solving linear systems with a Teacher Appreciation Twist. Humor Check: If the thought of telling a class, “In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, you all will be sending me thank you cards,” doesn’t make you smirk, you won’t like this product. (Don’t judge. It was just a thought.)
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).
