Situations Where Inequalities Can Be Used ~ Mini Poster
Inequalities Note Catcher
Inequality Situation Cards and Recording Sheet
Inequality Workout

Mini Poster: This mini poster can be used as an anchor mat for learning. Students can add real-life situations where inequalities can be seen or used.

Inequalities Note Catcher: Students are encouraged to fill in the sections on the note catcher with text, symbols, and pictures during the unit of study. The goal is to have students target concise, yet specific, details to demonstrate key understandings. This note catcher also can be used as a preassessment tool, part of a math center, a collaborative activity where students give one idea to get one idea from a classmate, a formative assessment, a summative task, or an activity to recycle skills.

Inequality Situation Cards and Recording Sheet: These 18 situation cards have different scenarios that require students to write the corresponding inequality. These situation cards help to strengthen students’ understanding of where inequalities can be seen or used in the real world while practicing how to write inequalities. These cards can be used in a math center, as a walk-the-room activity, or as a quick exit ticket. Recording sheet is included.

Inequality Workout: The purpose of Inequality Workout is to reinforce different ways to look at inequalities. In some cases, there is not one right answer so the activity allows for multiple entry points of learning. Inequality Workout can be used for whole group practice, small group instruction, independent practice, part of a math center, or as a formative assessment piece. The purpose of this activity is to reinforce different ways to look at and represents inequalities. This activity supports Common Core State Standards (CCSSM) 6.EE.5 and 6.EE.8.

The inequality cards are differentiated. The first set of 18 cards has positive integers. The second set of 18 cards has a checkered circle in the left corner and has negative integers and fractions. The third set of cards has a grey dot in the left corner and has solving one-step inequalities by adding and subtracting. Students can create their own inequality cards on the blank template included. A number cube is needed for the activity.

Students pick an inequality card and roll a number cube. Looking at the Action Board students determine which task they are to complete on the recording sheet. Tasks found on the Action Board include: listing values that make the inequality true, listing values that are not solutions to the inequality, describing a situation that matches the inequality, graphing the inequality on a number line, and writing an inequality in words and saying it.
