Warm Up
Solve an easy system using elimination.
1. Notes with word problems where we focus only on creating the system of two linear
equations. (Guided Practice)
2. They try one problem on their own and we check the answer as a class. (IP)
3. The students practice solving problems as a group (Assessment)
Group roles for this day:
a. Recorder: highlight key information
b. Manager: create the system
c. Checker: makes sure the system is correct and solves it
d. Presenter: shows answer and explains what the answer means
Closing: Randomly pick on groups to answer while checking as a class

Special needs learners


 Guided practice: we always practice at least one problem together, then they try on their
own
 Checking for understanding: Ask the students to repeat the directions and question them
throughout the lesson

English Language Learners


 Groups: those students who understand English the least are placed with someone who
can translate for them when needed
