Overview

In this activity, students will graph one linear inequality and then graph a system of linear inequalities as they apply to an area of land. Students will practice graphing systems of inequalities and determining if a points lies in the solution. In the extension, students are challenged to write a system of inequalities that describe the area of Mississippi.

Key Steps

  • Image

    Using the Inequality application, students will graph an inequality function that describes the region of the United States on the US/Mexico border.

    Students will graph a system of linear inequalities to determine if a points lies in the solution.

  • Image

    Students will determine the solution set by examining the graph.
