Systems of Linear Equations: Practice / Review:
by Math Giraffe

These books will help your students to practice solving systems of equations. Within the story are situations in which the reader must write a linear system correctly, determine the most efficient method to solve it, and explain the meaning of the solution. All work is done within the book. There are three different situations with options for solving and interpreting the solutions. One of the situations requires students to go back and check using another method as well.

Students make choices and head to the page that they are directed to. Students will have different results depending on their choice as the story continues. Your class will enjoy this format and get in a few great opportunities to practice the main ideas and concepts as well as the processes for each method of solving a system of linear equations.

This is a great activity for a quiet work day or substitute day. All work is done independently. When a student chooses a method that is not the most efficient way to solve a particular problem, the book explains why their choice was not the best and directs them how to continue. When they choose an incorrect equation, they are corrected. Since the book is partially self-correcting, the teacher correcting and grading is very minimal.

Take a look at the preview file for sample pages and assembly details.

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.
