Having a solid foundation in expressions, equations and inequalities is important as our students move through the grades and into Algebra Readiness. Each of the activities in this mini unit build on the basic concepts of expressions, equations and inequalities to make it interactive and engaging for your students to learn.
Students begin with an interactive lesson that is tiered on understanding expressions and equations with a variable while balancing equations. This moves into practice with real world problems that students must find the missing value. And the follow up lesson on Inequalities discusses the basic symbols of inequalities, has students build their communication skills by performing a sort independently or in a small group and then is followed by them applying what they know to create real life inequalities.
Each of the activities (input and output) are interactive and have a kinesthetic component of cutting and gluing with a sort of to make it more of a game-like activity which keeps students engaged.
