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...

Proofs into Practice: The Pythagorean Theorem in the Real World
As an introduction to the lesson plan, learners verify the Pythagorean theorem with a hands-on proof. Then, pupils use the theorem to determine whether three side lengths could form a right triangle and choose one of two real-life...
