Unit 1 - Linear Systems

By the end of this unit, students will be able to solve a system of linear equations using a variety of strategies, solve problems that are modelled by linear equations or systems of linear equations, and describe the relationship between the number of solutions to a system of linear equations and the coefficients of the equations.

SLIGHT CHANGE OF PLANS. PLEASE READ:
The substitution and elimination lessons seemed to catch the class by surprise. I know this is a lot of new math in a short timeframe. Unfortunately, that's because you have 2 courses per day instead of 4. This means double lessons in each course - every day. Anyway, I am cutting down the 1.4 lesson - read below...

For your 2nd day of @🏠 learning, please do the following:

  1. Finish the KnowledgeHook quiz for Review of Gr. 9 (if you haven't already). Instructions were emailed to you and demonstrated in class.

  2. Complete the 1.2 and 1.3 practice in Mathspace. These skills are crucial.

  3. Watch this short video on solving a word problem.

  4. Try to solve this one word problem on paper and bring your solution to class:
    Matthew’s piggy bank contains 308 quarters and nickels. If Matthew has a total of $33.60 in his piggy bank, how many quarters and nickels does he have?

Unit 1 Assessment is in-class on the following dates:

Cohort A - Tuesday, September 22nd
Cohort B - Wednesday, September 23rd

Students who utilize the resource room or use extra time from their IEP are strongly recommended to stay in the room and only move to resource once the first 75 minutes have passed. Resource teachers will be checking on us as we work.
