Lesson Plan: Consistency and Dependency of Linear Systems Mathematics • 8th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to determine the number of solutions for a system of linear equations and whether each system is consistent, inconsistent, or dependent.

Objectives

Students will be able to

• determine the number of solutions of a system of linear equations algebraically,
• determine the number of solutions of a system of linear equations graphically,
• understand the meaning of consistency and dependency in relation to systems of linear equations,
• calculate unknown quantities in systems of linear equations, given that the system is consistent, inconsistent, or dependent.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• graphing linear functions,
• solving linear equations.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

• solving systems of linear equations.
