Day 75... Multiple Ways to Tackle a Problem
I know I haven't shared much about Intermediate Algebra lately, mainly because I forget to take photos! :) We've been working on systems of equations and today I asked them to solve a system two ways to make the connection that the solution is the same, no matter which way you solve the problem. It took a while before the students realized that this is a method of "self-checking" and they didn't need to ask me "Is this correct?" after every problem!
Solving for y is still an issue for many of them, but hopefully with enough practice, it will become second nature.
