Are your kids struggling with systems of inequalities? Are they bored with all of the traditional book work? This 16-problem packet will give your students practice graphing systems of inequalities but allow them to have fun while they do it!
This packet gives 4 examples to start and reviews the rules for shading half-planes as well as the rules for solid or dotted lines.
The last 4 examples are practice problems that include horizontal and vertical lines which create "no solution" problems. I designed these in a way where they look like international flags. Just for fun, your students can see if they recognize which country they are from.
(**Note:This packet is designed to teach students to shade both inequalities and observe where the overlapping region is. If you are a teacher that prefers to graph only the solution/overlapping region then this packet is not designed for your method. You could still use it, your key will just look a little different and only have one color.)
In my experience, the coloring aspect of this activity serves two main purposes. Most students tend to enjoy coloring and I have found that it even calms them down a bit. This activity might take the better part of a class period and usually they will just sit quietly and color while completing the assignment. The second function of the coloring is that it provides instant feedback to the teacher and the student if their picture turns out different than the key.
