Linear Inequalities

Published on 07/12/2007

Activity Overview

Students are provided a handful of ordered pairs, and determine which are solutions to a given linear inequality. As a class, students plots their points, and work to develop ideas for graphing.

Before the Activity

Students should be provided with a handful (depending on the size of the class) of coordinate cards.

During the Activity

Navigator is used to allow students to contribute points which represent solutions to the given inequality. The attached file provides coordinate axes and student settings for Navigator.

After the Activity

Review student answers:

  • As a class, discuss questions that appeared to be more challenging
  • Re-teach concepts as necessary
