Title: Supply and Demand
Description:
This Illuminations lesson focuses on having students create and solve a system of linear equations in a realworld setting. By solving the system, students find the equilibrium point for supply and demand. Students should be familiar with finding linear equations from two points or slope and yintercept.
Standard(s): [MA2013] AL1 (912) 19: Prove that, given a system of two equations in two variables, replacing one equation by the sum of that equation and a multiple of the other produces a system with the same solutions. [AREI5] [MA2013] AL1 (912) 24: Graph the solutions to a linear inequality in two variables as a halfplane (excluding the boundary in the case of a strict inequality), and graph the solution set to a system of linear inequalities in two variables as the intersection of the corresponding halfplanes. [AREI12] [MA2013] AL1 (912) 46: Interpret the slope (rate of change) and the intercept (constant term) of a linear model in the context of the data. [SID7]

Title: Xpedition Hall
Description:
Built around the National Geography Standards, Xpedition Hall is a virtual museum that is filled with interactive exhibits designed to provoke reflection on how human beings shape and are shaped by the world in which we live. The Hall contains one exhibit for each of standard, and groups these exhibits into six galleries, which correspond to the standards six underlying '' elements.'' Students use can use an image or map of the Hall to navigate through the exhibits.
