The first page is a double-sided fill-in-the blank notes page with examples over the introductory concepts of Inequalities
The notes begin by having the student write the definition of an inequality and then record the inequality symbols. The focus of the notes is to understand what the inequality is asking for and not to just use a memorization trick.
The student is asked to find solutions to each inequality by finding numbers that make the inequality true. Then they graph the solutions on the number line. Examples are included where the graph is given and the student needs to write the inequality.
A space to record when to use a closed circle and an open circle is included. In addition, what to do when the inequality is written "backwards" is also included. Finally, the student records "math words" such as "no more than" and "at least" in a chart with the correct graphs as a reference. Not equal to and equal to are also included.
Also included is a one-sided independent practice page containing 18 questions over the same concepts. Key included for all pages.
