Graphing linear inequalities can be a frustrating concept to teach to students because it relies on their understanding of so many concepts and they have to be able to follow several steps! I created a notes packet that has worked well for my students, even in the regular classroom and with special education students! The lesson is scaffolded in a way that allows students to piece together the ideas they have already learned to help them to understand the steps to graphing a linear inequality.
This lesson includes:
--The definition of a linear inequality
--How to tell if a coordinate is a solution to an inequality or not
--Solving a linear inequality for y
--The steps for graphing linear inequalities in two variables
--How to graph linear inequalities with one variable on the coordinate plane.
This lesson is ready to go with the answer key--all you have to do is download and print!
My students have said "This is SO easy!" about graphing linear inequalities--something I never thought I would ever hear! This lesson includes notes, examples, and try-it-yourself problems.
I have a notes sheet over solving systems of linear inequalities that is in the same format and will help you to transition from graphing linear inequalities to solving systems of linear inequalities! I also have a bundle that has BOTH lessons in them! Check it out!
