Bring inquiry-based learning to your Algebra classroom with this scaffolded card sort! Students will have the opportunity to explore graphing inequalities on a number line through patterns and will end with a firm conceptual understanding of the topic. This activity is designed to replace traditional notes, PowerPoint slides, or lecture-based teaching in your lesson. Students can complete the card sort individually or in cooperative learning groups. Meanwhile, you’ll be free to circulate and act as a resource to push your students’ thinking to new heights! Answer key provided!
Common Core Standards Focus:
This activity is a precursor to CCSS Math standard [HSA-REI.D.10] Understand that the graph of an equation in two variables is the set of all its solutions plotted in the coordinate plane, often forming a curve (which could be a line). Have fun!
Necessary Prerequisite Skills:
identifying points on number line
