I should add that I'm on lesson 22 today, which I did modify to only focus on graphing solutions of systems of equations & inequalities. Tomorrow I'm going to do a day on the substitution method for solving systems of equations then on to 23 (elimination) which I've modified to give more practice problems instead of just all of the "why it works." After that I'm doing a day of practice solving systems (identifying which method is most appropriate when) then on to applications of systems.
I still haven't decided how I'm going to handle all the crazy modeling problems in Topic D (which has also come up here in other threads). I will probably spend time (maybe a day each) on consecutive integer, money, and age problems. I might not do the recursive intro as that comes up later in the year and I'd rather use the time to go more into depth on the applications.
Any thoughts?
