Student Earning Money Lesson Plan

This lesson highlights linear equations in real world application. There are 3 students who have to raise a certain amount of money to reach a financial goal. The students have 3 different jobs to choose from to reach their goal. You have to determine which job each student should choose based off of certain constraints. To use this lesson effectively, your students should be familiar with some sort of graphing technology as well as familiar with the attributes of piece-wise functions and linear equations. #VegasPBS-MATH410.45

Standard(s)/Course Objective(s)

  • A.CED.A.2-1 - Create linear, exponential, and quadratic equations in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities and graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales. Limit exponentials to have integer inputs only. *(Modeling Standard)
  • A-CED.A.3-1 - Represent constraints by linear equations or inequalities, and by systems of linear equations and/or inequalities, and interpret solutions as viable or non-viable options in a modeling context. For example, represent inequalities describing nutritional and cost constraints on combinations of different foods. *(Modeling Standard)
  • A.REI.D.10 - Understand that the graph of an equation in two variables is the set of all its solutions plotted in the coordinate plane, often forming a curve (which could be a line).
