5 ACTIVITIES IN 1!!!!!
Students cut apart the cards and match each real word situation to the corresponding inequality symbol. This can be done in two ways.
As a station activity: Print the blank board, and laminate the cards.
As an independent activity: Print a page for each student and have them cut and paste the cards.
Work Mat: Interpreting and graphing a solution.
Students use the spinners with a paper clip and a pencil to create the solution to an inequality. They then translate the inequality verbally and graphically.
Worksheet: Interpreting the solution set for an inequality.
In this activity students are given the variable and other values that are included in the data set. They then match each data set to create a true statement.
Flip-Flop Inequalities Game
The game that is included contains 32 task cards for solving one-step inequalities. As the players are engaged in the activity, they must pay attention to when the inequality symbol needs to be “flip-flopped.” If the sign needs to be changed the students reach for a “flip-flop” card which causes a chain reaction at the table. The player left without a “flip-flop” card loses the round. When I did this in my classroom, I purchased children's flip-flops at the dollar store for the students to play with. I also included a separate title sheet for the game. I like to glue the title page to the front of a pocket folder and laminate for easy storage.
Color Sheet: Writing an inequality given a graph.
The focus of the color sheet is on interpreting the graph of an inequality. Using the visual, students must determine the appropriate sign to use depending on whether or not the point is included in the data set. They then match the inequality to the corresponding color to shade the image.
