Students solve a problem of optimizing within constraints and then explore alternative algebraic and graphical approaches involving systems of linear equations.
Students explore relationships between variables in everyday situations using graphs, tables, and formulae.
Students connect descriptions of everyday situations with distance-time tables and graphs and relate speeds to the slopes of the graphs.
Students solve the problem of how many different tiles are needed to create a pattern at various sizes and explore alternative algebraic and geometrical approaches using linear and quadratic relationships.
Students make sensible assumptions and estimates in order to model a situation and solve a practical problem.
