Strand: ALGEBRA - Reasoning With Equations and Inequalities (A.REI)
Understand solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning (Standard A.REI.1). Solve equations and inequalities in one variable (Standard A.REI.3). Solve systems of equations. Build on student experiences graphing and solving systems of linear equations from middle school. Include cases where the two equations describe the same line - yielding infinitely many solutions - and cases where two equations describe parallel lines - yielding no solution; connect to GPE.5, which requires students to prove the slope criteria for parallel lines (Standards A.REI.5-6). Represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically (Standards A.REI.10-12).
Standard A.REI.11
Explain why the x-coordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y = f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where f(x) and/or g(x) are linear and exponential functions.
  • Carshop!
    Students go car shopping online, investigate the relationship between variables such as interest rate and monthly payment, develop two payment plans using online loan calculators, write a slope-intercept equation for each plan, and create a graph and table for the equations using a graphing calculator.
