With the greatest of enthusiasm, I share my most recent power point with you on "Graphing Inequalities in Two Variables".
* The lesson begins with a review showing ordered pairs as solutions to inequalities.
* Step by step, students move into graphing inequalities of vertical and horizontal lines.
* They review the meaning of boundaries, half-planes, and how to test for the solution half-plane.
* Progressing, they graph inequalities in two variables using slope-intercept form.
* Concluding the lesson, they review a real-life problem where they use an inequality model to plan a nutritious meal in order to be "fit" for an upcoming sports event.
* The lesson is aligned with CC Standards and with disciplines "Across the Curriculum".
* Students will find the lesson interesting and mathematically stimulating.
* A "Follow-up Assessment" (four questions) is included at the end of the lesson providing students and instructors ample opportunity to see how well the material is understood.
* GUIDED NOTES are provided for students to engage in active participation and acquire maximum comprehension from the lesson.
* I believe students will find the material informative and pleasurable, while instructors should find it practical.
Please enjoy the lesson!
