Solving Systems of Equations Graphic Organizer

This is the graphic organizer I use on the review day of our systems of equations unit. Students are to solve two systems of equations using the elimination, substitution, and graphing methods. When they finish, they must determine which method they liked the best and why. This is a great activity because it really helps students figure out when they should use a certain method over another!

Note: The second graphic organizer that is a part of this activity is difficult. However it sparked great discussions in my classroom and really helped learners see why knowing all the methods, and not just the one they liked the best, was important!

Solve systems of linear equations exactly and approximately (e.g., with graphs), focusing on pairs of linear equations in two variables.
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.
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.
