Big Ideas: Contextual situations can be represented by systems of equations and/or inequalities. Constraints are represented by a system of inequalities. Students will be able to look at a contextual situation, determine whether that situation would be best represented with a system of inequalities or equations, write the relevant system, and justify why the system relates to the context. Vocabulary: constraints, standard form, slope-intercept form, equation, inequality, system of equations, system of inequalities
