If Only I Had a System …This will be your opportunity to be the teacher. Click on “View Full Description and attachments” below for the directions and questions. Be sure to open the file that says “MATH110 Read This First” before you jump in!View Full Description and Attachment(s)Start with the attached files. First read the one entitled “READ THIS FIRST” and then open the file called “Systems of Equations Problems with Answers”. It is difficult to learn how to do story problems because there are so many different types. If you want to do well on this week’s test, FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS! 1) Go through ALL the story problems provided and try to solve them. Pretend it’s a Practice Test. Check your answers with the key provided. 2) Pick ONE of the problems that you got right (that has not already been solved by a classmate), and demonstrate its solution for the rest of us. 3) Study how your classmates solved the problems that you missed. Remember that these may be on the test!
To demonstrate your problem, select Start a New Conversation and make BOTH the problem number and topic (#10 Jarod and the Bunnies) the subject of your post.
Begin your post with a statement of the problem so that we can understand what you are doing.
The answers are at the end of the file, so don’t just give an answer—we can already see what the answers are. Don’t post an explanation unless your answer matches the correct one!
Your goal should be to explain this problem so well that a classmate who “just doesn’t get it” will be able to understand it completely!
This is a moderated forum. Your posting will say PENDING and will not be visible to the rest of the class until I approve it. Occasionally, more than one person will tackle a problem before they can see the work of others. In that case, credit will be given to all posters. Once the solution to a problem has become visible, that problem is off limits and you will need to choose a different problem in order to get credit.
I will indicate in the grading comments if corrections need to be made. If you haven’t received credit, first double-check for my comments in the gradebook. If everything looks OK, then message me asking me to check on it.
You must make the necessary corrections and have your work posted in order to receive credit.
For this particular Forum, no responses are required – your initial post is worth the full 10 points. Should you choose to respond to a classmate, a request for clarification on the procedure used, a suggestion for an alternate method of solving the problem or a general comment about the technique would all be appropriate. I’m sure that a “thank you” for an exceptionally clear explanation would also be welcome!
Please sign ALL your Forum posts with the name that you like to be called – it makes it so much easier for the rest of us to address you by your preferred name when we respond.
