## Give them some applications for the systems. My kiddos had a much better time with systems when you give them some context. Also, I usually allow for test corrections if they complete a study guide or the homework (synchronous/asynchonrous) leading up to the test. If they didn't put in the time to practice before the test, no sense in you spending time grading the test AND their test corrections. Gotta draw the line somewhere even with the considerations we've been making for the past 12 months.

same here. make them meaningful. also do the graphing first, so they understand what they represent.

Do a lab.

You need a good scale and a bunch of manageable, identical objects. Say, large nuts and bolts. Put 5 nuts and 8 bolts in a pile and weigh them. Then change the numbers of nuts and bolts. Goal of exercise is to determine how much each nut and bolt weighs without actually weighing them.

For higher levels, you could increase to weighing three objects (for three variables.)
