Algebra 1

Linear Inequalities

Solutions for linear inequalities in one and two variables can be described both graphically and symbolically. The activities in this unit explore the effect of multiplying a value by a negative number, describe graphical and symbolic solutions to inequalities, and develop the concept that a linear equation divides the coordinate plane into two half planes each described by a linear inequality.
