To solve a quadratic and linear equation simultaneously students first review the elimination method for two linear equations.
The development phase goes on to demonstrate solving the equations as means to calculating the intersecting point between their respective graphs. There are examples provided for the teacher to demonstrate and additional problems for the students.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to solve a pair of simultaneous equations where one is quadratic and the other is linear through the method of substitution.
- Most students should be able to find intersecting points from a quadratic and linear graph using the method of substitution to solve equations simultaneously.
- Some students should be able to find the intersecting point between a reciprocal and linear equation.
