Solving Multi-step Inequalities around Christmas time (Winter Break)? Add a little holiday spice to inequalities practice with this Christmas-themed math activity.
Solve multi-step inequalities: Find two versions of the 26 inequalities practice page. Both versions have the same solutions. Therefore, you can easily differentiate by student need without any hiccup in the activity (if you want). Please
see the thumbnails for a view of the two difficulty levels; some consider both levels challenging.
★Common Core Standards: REI.B.3
The Holiday Twist:
Students solve 15 random inequalities (out of 26 inequalities). Then to save grading time
(on winter break!) for the teacher, they use their answers to reveal a hidden message on one Christmas-themed greeting card
. Find 8 greeting card messages
in this product. Two of the 8 unashamedly use Christmas in the message; another is a joke about X-mas. No I’m not telling; it is that good. These messages are grouped together so that one could choose not to use them. Also find one very generic message for any student whom traditionally celebrates other holidays (or doesn’t celebrate). I enjoy hand selecting the recipient of the message, matching the message to the student’s personality.
Remember when the students turn in their work they are essentially sending the teacher the Christmas card. “Oh what thoughtful students I have!”
