This Systems of Linear Inequalities Card Sort Activity tests student knowledge on matching verbal descriptions of linear inequalities with their respective graphs, systems of inequalities (in standard form), and interpretation of solutions.
Within the Card Sort Activity there are 4 categories of cards to match:
1) Verbal Description
2) Systems of Linear Inequalities (in standard form)
4) Interpreting Solutions
Students then follow up the activity with a self-reflection of their learning and identify how systems of linear inequalities are used in the real world.
There are 8 unique sets of matches, as well as extra cards with incorrect answers so that students must think through each choice! Students work to sort and group the cards. A student recording sheet and answer key is provided for easy grading!
Differentiation: The Card Sort Activity is differentiated by use of heterogeneous groups with assigned roles. Directions to differentiate the groups are in the lesson plan!
Common Core Standards:
CCSS.MATH.HSA.REI.D.10 Understand that the graph of an equation in two variables is the set of all its solutions plotted in the coordinate plane, often forming a curve (which could be a line).
CCSS.MATH.HSA.CED.A.3 Represent constraints by equations or inequalities, and by systems of equations and/or inequalities, and interpret solutions as viable or nonviable options in a modeling context.
Answer key included.
