This is a fun "out of your seat" activity to practice and reinforce graphing and writing compound inequalities in forms "and" and "or".
This activity has students holding a card with a simple inequality and then finding another student with a different inequality. Students work together to form a compound inequality. They then graph it and write it.
This is a great activity to do right before moving on to absolute value inequalities. It really helps students understand how to make the number lines for compound inequalities and how to represent the answers properly. You will love all the discussion and collaboration happening between students. And you get to move around too as you facilitate the learning.
This activity also comes with a review of the number lines, as well as a review of solving compound inequalities. This activity goes great right between solving compound inequalities and moving on to absolute value inequalities.
This can be used with the provided review of solving compound inequalities or without.
(This makes a great observation lesson!)
Also great for review before a test.
