Published on 04/20/2005

Activity Overview

In this activity, students will plot the graphs of systems of equations and determine the number of real solutions of the system. Then find the solution of the system algebraically.

Before the Activity

Review the activity PDF file.
Download the TI InterActive!™ file for use by you and your students.

During the Activity

Students will:

  • Explore affect of changes in coefficients on the quadratic function to establish patterns.
  • After the Activity


  • Distribute the student activity sheets, as needed
  • Distribute the student TI InterActive file
  • Follow the procedures as outlined
