### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Practice solving inequalities the fun way with this matching activity! For each inequality, students will cut out and attach the matching sentence and the number line which shows the solution. We had a great time working on this in class and I was able to see where the students' weaknesses were by the questions they asked as they were trying to match each set. Only positive numbers are used in this product. Answer key is ALWAYS included here at Passport Math!

User notes:
1) We solved all of the inequalities as a class first before I let them start matching. The kids were still pretty new to the skill so that worked well for us. However you implement it, there is room in each box for the students to show their work.
2) There are ten sets, and the original inequalities have room right beside them for the kids to glue the sentence and number lines.
3) I included on the student pages the information that my students (especially my struggling students and English-language learners) needed the most: the definitions of sum/difference/product/quotient, the words for each sign (greater than, greater than or equal to, etc.), and whether each sign required a closed or open circle.
4) Lastly, we did this activity in December. The students loved the snowman, penguin, and reindeer pictures, so I kept them. The activity in no other way has to do with winter and can be used at any time of the year. I'm sure my students would have been just as delighted had I busted this out in May!
