System of Equations
Math in the Movies - Ty and Steve both work for Forum 12 Theater. One Saturday night they were asked to work the concession stand. At the end of their shift they were approached by their boss to figure out how many hotdogs and bags of popcorn they sold. Needless to say they had not been keeping track! Help Ty and Steve figure out how many of each product they sold by using a System of Equations. Next, your students will develop their own System of Equations word problem. They will work as a group to develop their own word problem then move around the room to solve another groups problem. This is a great cooperative learning activity that allows your students to see all the aspects that make up a great word problem plus apply their understanding of Systems!
