Real World Solving Linear Systems of Equations - Creating Student Math Videos

I had an opportunity to work in Mrs. Gardin’s MFM2P Grade 10 Applied math class over the past week and it was decided that a portion of the culminating task for the Solving Linear Systems of Equations unit would be to create a Real World Problem involving a two-equation linear system that other students could then solve as an assessment.

Since this was the first attempt by both Mrs. Gardin and myself to integrate the creation of video by students for math assessment, we were anxious to see how the final products would turn out. Overall, the videos were done very well and watching the videos led to some great discussion as well as the opportunity for students to show their understanding of solving linear systems by graphing, elimination and substitution.
