### Polynomials

Students explore the features of polynomials and consider how those features might help sketch the graph of functions.

### Systems of Linear Equations

Students use systems of linear equations to decide which option for bus fare is the best deal.

### Solving Inequalities

Students explore which operations “flip” the inequality sign by performing various operations to an inequality statement and investigating which operations maintain a true statement.

### Linear Equations and Graphs

Students work as a group to figure out the hourly wage necessary for a family in Chicago to afford housing using linear equations and graphs, including points of intersection. Links to resources are provided to adapt the task for other cities.
