LEARNING TARGET (Essential Understanding)

I understand ..

A solution to an inequality is the value or set of values that can be substituted to make the inequality true. Real-world problems can be modeled and solved using linear inequalities. Properties of inequality and order can be used to solve inequalities. Set builder notation may be used to represent solution sets of inequalities. 1. 2. Vertical Articulation 3. 4. 1.

Practice

Videos 1. Linear Inequalities in Two Variables - Activity A - Find the solution set to a linear inequality in two variables using the graph of the linear inequality. Vary the terms of the inequality and vary the inequality symbol. Examine how the boundary line and shaded region change in response. Solving Linear Inequalities using Addition and Subtraction - Solve a linear inequality. Graph the solution on a dynamic number line. Solving Linear Inequalities using Multiplication and Division - Solve an inequality involving multiplication and division. Graph the solution on a number line. Systems of Linear Inequalities (Slope-intercept form) - Activity A - Compare a system of linear inequalities to its graph. Vary the coefficients and inequality symbols in the system and explore how the boundary lines, shaded regions, and the intersection of the shaded regions change in response.
