In this graphing inequalities instructional activity, students create graphs of algebraic expressions containing inequalities. This two-page instructional activity contains explanations and examples prior to the exercise. The first page is a contains definitions, and the second page contains approximately 11 problems.
Learners solve inequalities. In this inequalities lesson, students evaluate simple inequalities. They examine vocabulary words. Learners participate in breath holding activities and write inequalities to represent the activity. In teams, students play tic-tac-toe and name that number to identify inequality equations. They write journal entries and create flow charts to identify the steps in solving inequalities.
Third graders read problems, then solve them using counters, number lines, or other manipulatives.They discuss various ways that the problems can be written mathematically. When students are solid with completing equalities, they are presented with inequalities and solve those in a similar manner.
Seventh graders look at patterns to discover how to graph an inequality. In this graphing inequalities lesson, 7th graders observe and investigate the puzzle of solving inequalities through graphing. Students work in groups to solve inequality problems on a worksheet. Students graph their results.
Put geometry skills to the test! Learners solve compound inequalities and then graph the inequalities on a coordinate plane using their geometric skills. They identify the slope and y-intercept in order to graph correctly. I like this lesson plan because it uses multiple colors to differentiate concepts as they are represented on the graph.
