Explore linear equations with this sixth through eight grade mathematics lesson. Learners investigate solving linear equations using pictures. The kinesthetic and visual use of the pictures and symbols is designed to help them develop a concrete understanding of an abstract concept.
Engage your class in a lesson that requires them to find solutions to linear equations with the help of a graphing calculator. They define the term variable and enter different linear equations on a coordinate plane. The lesson includes several examples to be used by the teacher.
Middle and high schoolers solve systems of equations relating to money and explore substitution and elimination strategies. For this systems of linear equations lesson, pupils review, The Chicken and Pigs problem and compare their solutions with the graphing solution. They complete the worksheet on systems of equation for practice.
Here's a lesson to help the class make cognitive connections between graphs and linear equations. After the class reviews how to determine the possible ordered pairs of a simple equation, they practice solving and graphing equations using two variables to interpret the information as it relates to real-world situations.
Walk the class through the steps of how to evaluate linear equations and their associated graphs to analyze patterns. Define and discuss key vocabulary terms before having the class observe you model examples of each concept. Then, have individuals independently complete a worksheet.
Mathematicians use an inquiry method to solve linear equations. In this linear equations lesson, learners practice solving equations using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They solve multi-step equations and equations with variables on both sides of the equal sign. Each section features a class discussion, and work sample questions. The final activity requires students to work in small groups to plan a one-day trip to France.
Explore algebra I/algebra II with this series of worksheets. Pupils write linear equations in slope-intercept and standard form, graph linear equations, and apply linear equations to real world applications. The six-page activity contains six multi-part problems. Answers are not included.
