In this lesson, students write, solve, and graph systems of linear equations to determine how long it takes to pay off a ticket and debate the fairest ways for cities to raise revenues without harming their poorest residents.
In this lesson, students learn about how pyramid schemes work, and use geometric sequences to model the (exponential!) growth of a pyramid scheme over time.
