The terminology has since been corrected and updated. Thanks to the commenters for the newfound knowledge.)  Here's an activity on systems of inequalities that teaches or reinforces the following concepts: … Continue reading Systems of Linear Inequalities: Paleontological Dig

U-haul Linear Systems problem (updated and improved)

A couple weeks ago I posted this problem. I like the problem, but I wasn't a huge fan of its solution and frankly, it sort of got away from me.

So the Emergent Math family moved houses this weekend (editor's note: they didn't actually move the houses, they moved the furniture inside the houses). We were given basically three different options for U-Haul rentals of increasing size and increasing price. This led me to believe that a┬ánice systems problem could be constructed from this. I … Continue reading Can someone help me improve this problem? (U-Haul rental rates ; systems of linear functions)
