This activity sheet, containing twenty exercises, focuses on the concept of solving an inequality statement by writing equivalent inequality statements by using addition and subtraction.
In the twenty questions,
● Students first write two inequality statements to model real world statements. Then students use addition or subtraction to write equivalent inequality statements until they can read the solution to the inequality statement;
● Students study two number lines and write inequality statements that represent the graphed numbers;
● Students then First write out, in words, what each inequality statement says and then illustrate each inequality on the given number line;
● Students then explain why two inequality statements are or are not equivalent;
● Students Write a verbal sentence as an inequality, solve the inequality and then graph their solution;
● Students then solve an inequality statement and graph the solutions on a number line; and
● Students then solve two geometry problems by writing inequality statements and solving the inequality statements.
Solutions for all exercises are included.
