Task 6-2: creating math entities

This is an extension of my system of equations exercise posted on July 21st.  These are 3 math tasks with a potential assessment method.

Create a system of two equations that has one solution.  Show what it looks like on a coordinate plane.  I would use an objective, formative assessment.

Create a system of two equations that have no solution. Show what it looks like on a coordinate plane.  I would use a subjective, formative assessment since I am looking for a higher level of thought and would value a correct answer as well as a good effort.

Create a system of three equations.  You do not need to solve, but show several graphs of what a solution might look like.  Talk about what the graph may tell you.  For example, is there one solution for all 3 lines based on your graph?  I would use a constructive response assessment.
