Graphing linear inequalities challenge students to understand the relationship between functions, equations and their graphs, then extend these concepts to graph a half-plane.
This mission is aligned to Common Core State Standards: HSA.REI.D.12.
The funs stuff:
Linear inequalities! They are actually a great way to review function and equation concepts, because suddenly we are interested in graphing points not on the line. This mission keeps students focused on the function as a reference as they explore linear inequalities. Super visual!

The mission includes:
•Exploring the relationship between points on, above or below the line and the line’s equation.
•Representing these relationships with inequalities.
•Techniques for graphing inequalities based on functions in slope-intercept or standard form.

About Courage To Core:
We all have an innate curiosity about how the world works. We are wired to experiment at the edges of our knowledge, to look for patterns and to draw conclusions. Mistakes are the welcome surprises which help us refine the experiment. In a student-centered classroom, students collaborate to ask questions, gather data, interpret results and articulate understanding. Success at the edge of knowledge demands persistence and creativity. Courage To Core provides a context for students to work together to become the agents of their success and the owners of their cognition.
