In this lesson, students will engage in an inquiry-based surface learning experience on Systems of Equations. Students will discover foundational knowledge of systems
of equations as they relate it to everyday choices they make, along with the pros and cons of decisions for all parties involved in the decision, a challenge present for many in present-day culture. Students will be made aware of how the choices they make not only affect themselves but a larger community. Students will also utilize conditional statements in validating their reasoning.
In future lessons, students will learn how to solve systems graphically and algebraically, however, this lesson will access student intuition and empathy in decision-making processes.
