CCSS.Math.Content.HSA-CED.A.2 Teacher Pass

Double the variables, double the fun.

The world is full of relationships. Some are good, some aren't so good, and some are downright dysfunctional. Regardless, it's about time students learned to express those relationships—and not through flowers, chocolates, or musical greeting cards. We're talking about creating and graphing equations in two variables, and that's what A-CED.2 is all about.

In this teaching guide, you'll find all the tips and tricks you can use to help students create and graph two-variable equations, and have fun doing it. At the very least, they'll save a boatload of money when Valentine's Day rolls around.
