Thursday, April 12MS Exemplar Lesson 6: Substitution Method Lesson Targets: • Students will demonstrate the concept of substitution using Algebra Tiles. • Students will utilize the substitution method to solve a system of equations.
Bell Work: Graph to solve the system 𝑦 = 3𝑥 - 1 and 𝑦 = -2𝑥 + 8. • How can a system of equations be solved when the point of intersection is not a lattice point?
2. 2𝑥 + 𝑦 = 6 𝑦 = 5 − 2𝑥 *Notice the first equation is not in slope-intercept form... WHAT DO YOU DO????
3. 7 − 2𝑦 = 𝑥 𝑥 + 2𝑦 = 3 *Notice the first equation is solved for x... use this to your advantage!
Exit Ticket: Turn in your work for problems 1,2, and 3, and write down pros and cons of using graphing and substitution methods.
WORK NOT FINISHED IN CLASS IS HOMEWORK! Reminder: Mid-Unit Assessment Corrections are due TUESDAY 4/17
Friday, April 13MS Exemplar Lesson 7: More Substitution ***BLUE PROGRESS REPORT*** Students are to turn in any homework they have completed, including Mid-Unit Assessment Corrections.
Warm-up Problems: SOLVE THESE 1. 2x = 2x – 5
2. 4y + 6 = 2y – 4
3. 5 (x - 3) = 3x + 8
Classwork: Handout 7.1: Show Time Movie tickets at the local theater cost $6 for adults and $2 for children under 12. If 175 tickets were sold, with cash receipts of $750, how many children’s tickets were sold?
● What variables are needed to write a system for this scenario? ● What would the variables represent? ● What are some other ways to solve this besides substitution or graphing?
