Inequalities Intro to Shading the Graph

Inequalities Intro to Shading the Graph
Product Description
In this inquiry activity, students discover why we shade inequality graphs.

Students will create simple graphs based on a description of the heights of two people, Jack and Jill. One will lead to a line, and one will lead to a shaded portion of the graph.

This is a quick lesson I use to introduce two-variable inequalities and how they look on a graph.

I try to make the idea simple so students get the concept!

You will receive a PDF of the student sheet and a key with notes for you.

Graph the solutions to a linear inequality in two variables as a half-plane (excluding the boundary in the case of a strict inequality), and graph the solution set to a system of linear inequalities in two variables as the intersection of the corresponding half-planes.
