## Monday, March 02, 2015

Class schedule: periods 1,2,3,4,5,6

Learning Goal: I can use the substitution method to find the coordinate pair that satisfies a 2 by 2 system of equations and verify my solution is correct.

Friday, our probe showed that 25% of students have mastered this concept. Today you will work on identifying specific areas in this process that you need to improve upon in order to be successful.

Warm Up: Differentiated Do Now

Activator: Students will mark off the areas on micro-scale in order to identify which individualized activity you will be working on.

Table Stations:
Evaluating for a specific variable

Substitution with an expression

Checking Solutions

You will be monitoring your understanding of solving systems of equations with substitution throughout the period using the scale.

Reflection/Summary:
Revisit the scale. Did you go up, down? What did you improve on?
