HA2 S3.2 Substitution Method

HA2 S3.2 Substitution Method

Author: Renee Voltin
  • Students will apply the SUBSTITUTION METHOD to solve a system of equations (2 variables - 2 equations... if there were 3 variables we would need 3 equations, etc.).
  • Students will determine whether there is one solution (and what that solution is), infinitely many solutions, or no solutions to a system of equations.

Included in this packet are several short videos - each showing an example of the application of the substitution method.  Each subsequent example will involve a few additional steps from the previous example in order to solve the system of linear equations.

Background info

You've solved linear equations, now you'll use many of those techniques to solve a SYSTEM of equations.  This lesson will focus only on solving systems of LINEAR EQUATIONS, but the substitution method could be used for solving a system of equations with equations from a variety of 'families'.
