The students will use their knowledge of writing a system of linear equations and graphing linear equations to determine the best option when deciding to purchase a season ski pass or a day ski pass. The students will need to have prior knowledge of what the solution to a system of equations means in order to interpret their findings.

This is truly a real life lesson plan.  I think all of us do this daily.  This
is really transferable to all ages.  I have seen lessons like this for older
students that involve groceries and a 3rd variable because of the shelf life.  I
like it. 

Technical Remarks:

Having a minimum of 1 computer per group is low to me.  Every student should
have their hands on the computer.  Each student could create their own graph or chart.

I like this lesson. It could easily be applied to other areas of research and set clear expectations for new work while drawing from previous work.

Technical Remarks:

A viewer can read the comments between you and Amy on the side. If you want to remove them, you could link MERLOT to a pdf of the plan.
