The next unit I am teaching will be Graphing Systems of Equations. It is important to know what our studentsâ€™ abilities are before teaching the unit because we need to know what prior knowledge they will need or they have. Students will need to know many things before graphing systems of equations. They will need to know how to use the coordinate grid, graph lines, how to use substitution and elimination, how to find x and y intercepts manipulating the equations or using a graph. So many students in my classes have gaps in their learning, so this can be very challenging. I like the idea of spiraling lessons and want to incorporate that method more in my teaching.
