Inequality Picture Project
Students work independently on this tiered algebra assignment to , solve, create an “image”, and . If students do not know how to solve inequalities yet, no problem! There is a direction page and project rubric for a simple version of the project as well. The student projects can be created and submitted electronically or on paper. Providing students with the option allows for students to use creativity and choose a project which works best for his/her preference.
For this project, students create a fun and silly image based on an inequality created by the student. Each student writes a sentence or few sentences that can be written as an inequality. After writing and solving the inequality, the student will graph and make an image of the inequality. Students can do this via any preferred media such as video, computer images or hand drawn.
Example (For students who know how to solve inequalities): “The awesome alligator ate four fish and plans to eat even more. At the end of the day, the alligator plans to eat no less than ten fish. How many fish does the alligator still need to eat?” This expression is written 4 + n ≥ 10 and then solved and graphed as n ≥ 6. Furthermore, the image must show a number that matches the inequality. The smallest possible amount of fish in the picture is six but can be any number above six.
Example (For students who do not know how to solve inequalities): “The awesome alligator ate no less than ten fish." This expression is written as n ≥ 10 and then graphed. Furthermore, the image must show a number that matches the inequality. The smallest possible amount of fish in the picture is ten but can be any number above ten.
