Renting Cars, Stealing Money, and Linear Functions
When comparing pricing models, young mathematical consumers, create linear equations and analyzing them graphically and algebraically. They look at the meaning of slope and intercepts, as well as the intersection points of lines.

Solving Systems of Linear Equations
Solving systems of equations underpins much of advanced algebra, especially linear algebra. Developing an intuition for the kinds and descriptions of solutions is key for success in those later courses. This intuition is exactly what...
