Activity Overview

Students are to find the solution to a system of linear equations using technology. They are presented with a problem about parking lot fees.

Objectives

  • Students will find the solution to a system of linear equations by hand.
  • Students will use the TI-Nspire CX II to graph a linear system in two variables and find the intersection point(s).
  • Students will create and graph linear piecewise functions.
  • Students will try to make a connection with how to understand these topics in IB Mathematics courses and on their final assessments.

Vocabulary

  • linear system                  
  • piecewise function
