This talk frame was created for algebra students developing skills with solving systems of equations. Students should be comfortable with the three different methods for solving systems before you use this talk frame in class. A system is presented and students are asked to decide which method to use (linear combination, substitution, or graphing). The talk frame suggests looking at each method individually and discussing what the process would be like. The goal of the task is for students to understand that any method may be used to solve systems of equations, but some methods may be more efficient.
