This product contains 12 task cards that require students to solve inequalities. Students have to choose the correct one of four numbers that satisfies the inequality. This requires students to actually understand the meaning of the inequality symbol.
Students solve and get a solution of a<5. If the answer choices are 5, 3, 8, and 10, the correct answer is 3
because it is the only one that is actually less than
The variable is on the left side of each inequality. Combining of like terms is required. Look at the preview to get an idea of the difficulty level of the inequalities. Some problems involve division by a negative that causes the inequality symbol to be flipped.
A student work form is provided for students to show their work for each individual station. A form is included with a number line for each problem in case you want your students to draw the graph of the inequality as well as solve it.
If students are solving correctly, they will complete a loop and end at their starting card. I arrange cards in alphabetical order in my room to make back-tracking easy if mistakes are made. Place cards on desks, hang on walls, or both.
