Systems of Linear Inequalities 2

Published on 08/25/2011

Activity Overview

Examine the graphical and algebraic representations of a system of inequalities.

Objectives

  • Identify points in a region of a system of linear inequalities in a graph
  • Identify the algebraic form of a system of inequalities from a graph representing points in the region

Vocabulary

  • System of inequalities
  • Boundary line
  • Region

About the Lesson

This lesson involves examining the graphical and algebraic representations of a system of inequalities. As a result, students will:

  • Determine whether points are in a region, on the boundary but not in the region, or not in the region of a system of inequalities.
  • Make a conjecture as to the definition of a system of inequalities in algebraic form.
