Lesson 6.1: “ Solving Systems by Graphing”
1. Introduce a system graphically by showing the 3 different types of solutions that can occur: -1 solution (lines intersect in 1 point) “independent” -no solutions (parallel lines-0 points in common) “inconsistent” -infinite solution (same line/equation-overlapping-infinite points in common) “ dependent” Sketch out what the 3 different situation would look like when you graph the 2 lines for each scenario. Show cheer with arm movements “How many solutions can there be? One! None! Infinitely Many!” Show powerpoint slide form Pearson successnet additional examples y = 2x + 1 the slope is 2 and the y-intercept is 1 y = 3x – 1 the slope is 3 and the y-intercept is -1 graph both lines on the same set of axes and the solution is the points they have in common (2,5)

2. Graph and solve: Y= 2x +1 Y = -1x + 4 Solution- (1,3) ‘independent’ 3. Graph and solve: Y = 3/2x + 1 Y = 3/2x -4 Solution: parallel lines (since same slope) so NO solution “inconsistent” 4. Graph and solve: Y = -4/3x + 5 4x + 3y =15 (which when you put in y=mx+b form is y=-4/3x + 5) Solution: Infinite solution (since same line) “dependent” 5. Graph and solve: Y= 4x – 3 Y = -3x – 3 Solution: (0, -3)

6. Graph and solve: Y = 5/3x -4 Y= 2x – 6 Solution: (6, 6) 7. Graph and solve Y = -x + 2 3x + 3y = 12 Solution: same slope so parallel so NO solution 8. Without graphing decide if each system has 1, none or infinitly many solutions just by looking at the slope of the 2 lines. Let students know that in order to do these kinds of problems the equation must be in slope intercept form y= mx + b so you can see what the slope, m, is . If the given problem has equations in standard form you will need to solve for y. a) Y= 5/6x + 12 and Y= 4/3x -5: different slope so ONE solution b) 2x + y = 6 and 3y= -6x + 9: same slope so NO solution c) Y = 2/3x + 4 and 2x -3y = 3: same slope so NO solution d) Y = -x – 3 and –y = x + 3: same equation so INFINITE solution 9. Is an ordered pair a solution to the system? Yes: if when you substitute the (x,y) in the equation and it makes both equations true. No: if when you susbstitute in (x,y) you get at least 1 false statement 10. Y = 2x -20 and y = -x + 34 a) Is (10,0) a solution? No b) Is (18, 5) a solution? no c) Is ( 5,4) a solution? Yes Can use practice 6.1 worksheet to have groups make posters and present their findimgs to the class HW: 6.1: #1-22 (pg 279) HW video tutor: solving & interpreting a system of linear equations by graphing: webcode: bae-1601 HW video tutor: interpreting solutions of systems of linear equations HW video tutor: analyzing special types of linear systems Interpersonal

Lesson 6.2: “ Solving Systems by Substitution”
Let students know that there are 3 ways to solve a system of equations: -graphing (section 6.1) -substitution (section 6.2) -elimination (section 6.3) Substitution and Elimination are algebraic methods that allow for more precise answers than graphing. Steps to follow when using substitution:

Logical mathematical

Step1: solve one equation for one variable in terms of the other variable Step 2: substitute you step#1 into the 2nd equation and solve for the other variable (you will get an actual number here) Step 3: Use values from step #2 and substitute back into the 1st equation to get the value of the 1st variable. Step 4: Write your solution as a point (x,y) NOTE: For visual learners I always color code each equation separately: blue for first equation and green for second equation so as to visually keep the 2 equation separate. I do all the work in black. I also, box the original equation so I can refer back to what I started with when it comes time to substitute back in. 1. y = 3x x + y = 20 solution: (5,15) 2. x = y – 7 2x + y = 1 Solution: ( -2, 5) 3. 2x + 3y = 4 x – 3y = 5 solution ( 3, -2/3) 4. y = x – 7 2x + y = 8 Solution ( 5, -2) 5. 2x + 4y = -6 x – 3y = 7 solution ( 1, -2) 6. y = 2x + 7 y = 5x + 4 solution ( 1, 9) 7. x + 2y = 200 x = y + 50 solution ( 100, 50) 8. 3x – 2y = 0 x + y = -5 solution ( -2, -3) 9. SPECIAL CASES (infinite and no solutions): How do you know when there is no solution (parallel lines no points in common) or infinite solution (same line all points in common) if you do not graph the lines? What will happen algebraically to show you these two types of special situations? a) y = 3x – 6 -3x + y = -6 When you go to solve this you end up with -6 = -6 which is always true

which means there is infinite solutions. Whenever you go to solve and you end up with something like 3=3 or 10=10 you know you are in an infinite solution situation. How to check? Get both equations in y=mx+b forma nd you will see that indeed they are the same equation and therefore share all points in common and thus have infinite solutions. b) 3x + y = 10 y = -3x + 4 When you go to solve this you get 4=10 which is of course not true and never will be true and therefore has no solutions. Anytime you solve and you end up with something like 6= -8 or 3=100 which you know is never going to be true you are in a parallel line situation which has no solution since the lines never cross. How to check? Get both equations in y= mx + b form and you will see that they both have the same slope (in this example both have slope = -3) HW: 6.2: #1-18 (pg 284) HW Video tutor: Solving Systems using substitution: webcode: bae-0602 HW video tutor: Real world situation solving using substitution

Lesson 6.3: “ Solving Systems by Elimination”
Introduce by telling kids this is a method by which you use addition or subtraction to get rid of or “eliminate” one variable. Remember you can not solve for 2 variables at the same time so you need to find a way to be able to work with only variable first then once you solved for that variable you can substitute it back in to find the other variable. How to solve using Elimination: Step 1: add or subtract the 2nd equation so as to eliminate 1 variable. Step 2: solve for 1 variable Step 3: use substitution to find the value of the other variable TRICK to STEP 1: if the coefficients of the variables are not the same simple adding or subtracting will not work right away. So…what you will need to do is MULTIPLY one or both equations first to get the variables the same BEFORE you ADD or SUBTRACT. 1. 4x – 3y = -15 4x – 5y = -7 Which variable to eliminate? X How? Subtract Solution (-3, 1) Logical Mathematical

2. 6x – 2y = 9 6x + 5y = -18 Which variable to eliminate? X How? Subtract Solution (0.5, -3)

3. 4x – 3y = 1 -8x + 7y = 3 Which variable to eliminate? X How? Multiply top equation by 2 then Add Solution (4, 5) 4. 2x + 7y = 5 2x + 3y = 9 Which variable to eliminate? X How? Subtract Solution ( 6, -1) 5. 4x – y = 6 3x + 2y = 21 Which variable to eliminate? y How? Multiply first equation by 2 and then add Solution (3, 6) 6. 4x + 5y = 6 6x – 7y = -20 Which variable to eliminate? X How? Multiply first equation by 6 and second equation by 4 so that the coefficient of x is 24 for both equations. (Flip flop multiply coefficients is a method that always works) Then subtract HW: 6.3: #1-22 (pg 290-291) HW video tutor: Solving systems using elimination-adding: webcode bae-0603 HW video tutor: Solving systems using elimination-multiplying first

Lesson 6.5: “ Linear Inequalities”
Introduce lesson using video” Graphing linear inequalities. This will give students

an idea of what is going on and introduce idea that an inequality is a shaded region. The video problems include a) Y ≤ x + 2 b) Y < -2x Test Points: the video talks about using a test point to figure out where to shade . It recommends using (0, 0) as your test point and says to shade in the direction where the points in that region make the inequality true. Definition: Linear Inequality: is an inequality in 2 variables whose graph is a region of the coordinate plane that is bounded by a line (it is a half plane) Graph: y < -2/3x + 6 STEPS to FOLLOW: Step 1: Graph the boundary line (graph using y = mx + b technique) If ≤ or ≥ use a SOLID line If < or > use a DASHED line Step 2: Shading: If y < or ≤ shade DOWN If y > or ≥ shade UP (talk about test point)

Visual Spatial Logical Mathematical

Graph y > -2x + 1 use a dashed boundary line

Graph y ≤ 4/3x -3 use a solid boundary line
Shade below the boundary line

Definition: Solution set: is all the points in the shaded region. All these points

make the inequality true. Look at our last graph is (3,1) a solution? You can see that it is not in the shaded region and when you plug it back into the inequality it is makes a false statement 1 ≥ 2 so NO (3, 1) is not a solution to the inequality. NOW do Practice 6.5 worksheet: 1. Y ≥ -4 2. X + y < -2 3. Y < x 4. X > 2 5. 4x + y > -6 6. -3x + y ≤ -3 7. X + 4y ≤ 8 8. Skip 9. Y > -x + 2 10. 2x + 3y < -9 NOTE: Remind student that if the inequality is not in y= mx +b form they will need to solve for y before they can graph and shade. Bike Word Problem: At a bike shop it takes 3 hours to assemble a bike and 1 hour to road test a bike. Each technician can only work 45 hours a week. What are all the different combinations of assembling and road testing a technician can work in a week? X = number of bikes assembled in 1 week Y = number of bikes road tested in 1 week 3x + 1y ≤ 45 Get boundary line points (15, 0) and (0,45) to get the extremes of doing all of one job and none of the other to help graph the line. Ask questions like Can the technician assemble 20 bikes and road test 20 bikes in the same week? Why or why not? Is (20, 20 ) in the shaded region? Is it part of the solution set?

3. Graph 5x – 2y > 10

4. Graph 2x + 6y ≤ 0

Now that we have remembered how to graph a single linear inequality, a system of linear inequalities is just graphing 2 at a time on the same set of coordinate axes and the solution set will be the region where the 2 shadings overlap. Usually this turns out to be a little triangle-pie-shaped area. Pass out graph paper and colored pencils. Graph each inequality in differenct colors then use a 3rd color (or highlighter) to show the final solution set. Watch video tutor: Graphing systems of linear inequalities link below.

Culminating Project: Systems of Equations and Inequalities: “Pirate treasure Project” View my webquest:

Visual Spatial 1. Pirate Treasure Project Introduce the project using video clips from Logical Mathematical Naturalistic Musical Interpersonal Intrapersonal

“Pirates of the Carribean” and pirate map images from the internet. 2. Divide the class into groups and pair groups against each other. 3. Give each student their candy or prize to hypothetically hide on their graph and act as their “pirate treasure” 4. Each group will “hide” their candy somewhere on the coordinate plane and create a pirate treasure map with “clues” to find the buried treasure. a) Determine the grid point where you want to hide your candy. b) Write a system of three linear inequalities on a clean sheet such that the solution to the system creates a small area surrounding the hidden candy. These will be the first set of clues you give the other group. Write these 3 inequalities on a clean sheet of paper to give to the other group. Using your knowledge of geography and nature create your own fictional geographical names for each region based such as “the Red Sea” or “Barbados Coastline”. c) Write a system of two linear equations on the other clean sheet of paper where the solution is the exact location of the candy. The intersection of these two lines will act as the “X” that marks the spot on your pirate treasure map. This will be the second set of clues you give the other group. Again create fun fictional names for your equation clues such as “Deadman’s Mountain Range” or “Davey’s Jones’ Secret Passage”. d) Create final treasure map showing how all your 3 inequalities and 2 equations come together to locate your buried treasure on a coordinate grid. e) Nominate a person from your group to write a short fictional story and song for your pirate group. This person will be your pirate captain and introduce your pirate treasure hunt to the class. 5. Groups will present their pirate group to the class and then exchange their systems of three inequalities with another group. 6. When groups receive their systems of three inequalities give them sufficient time to graph the system on their own sheet of graph paper. 7. One the time limit has expired or groups have successfully graphed the system, groups will receive the system of equations from the same group they received the system of inequalities. 8. Groups then will try to determine the exact coordinates (x,y) of the hidden candy by graphing the system of equations onto their graph paper. 9. If group 2 finds group 1’s candy coordinate then group 2 gets group 1’s candy. 10. If group 2 does NOT find groups 1’s candy coordinate then group 2 does NOT get group 1’s candy (group 1 gets to keep their candy treasure)
