Ch 6: Using Systems of Linear Equations: Homeschool Curriculum

About This Chapter

The Using Systems of Linear Equations unit of this High School Trigonometry Homeschool Curriculum course is designed to help homeschooled students learn how to use systems of linear equations. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

Who's it for?

This unit of our High School Trigonometry Homeschool Curriculum course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about using systems of linear equations. There is no faster or easier way to learn how to use systems of linear equations. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about solving systems of linear equations with two or three variables, infinite solutions or no solution.
  • Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
  • Homeschool parents who need a math curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
  • Gifted students and students with learning differences.

How it works:

  • Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
  • Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
  • Short quizzes and a Using Systems of Linear Equations unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

Using Systems of Linear Equations Unit Objectives:

  • Learn how to use a system of linear equations to solve a mathematical problem.
  • Understand the steps for solving a system of linear equations with two variables.
  • Learn the steps for solving a system of linear equations with three variables and a solution.
  • Understand the steps for solving a system of linear equations with three variables and infinite solutions.
  • Learn the steps for solving a system of linear equations with three variables and no solution.

What is a System of Equations?

1. What is a System of Equations?

So what happens if we want to compare more than one equation? Welcome to a 'system' of equations! Learn what one is, how to solve them and when they come up in real life.

How Do I Use a System of Equations?

2. How Do I Use a System of Equations?

There are a few classic algebra word problems, such as the one about two trains traveling at different speeds. In this lesson, you'll learn how to take a word problem and convert it into the system of equations that will allow you to find the answer using either substitution or elimination.

How to Solve a System of Linear Equations in Two Variables

3. How to Solve a System of Linear Equations in Two Variables

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can solve a system of linear equations in two variables by using the substitution method. Learn how easy it is to use on any linear system in two variables.
