Students will practice writing an inequality from a word problem, solving it, graphing it, and interpreting the solution. The catch is that they will be doing this in a group of 4 and only able to see what the person before them did. This activity makes them focus on solving the inequalities one step at a time and that every step is reliant on the step before being done correctly.
Students will read the word problem on their sheet and will write an algebraic inequality that matches it. You have 8 different problems so all students will have a different problem to be working on within their group. They will then fold back and hide the word problem before rotating the papers around their group. The next person to receive the paper must solve the inequality that the first person wrote without seeing the original word problem. They then fold back the original inequality and rotate the papers. The 3rd person must now graph it based only on the solved inequality. The final person unfolds the paper, reads the problem to interpret the solution. They then check over all of the work to see if the students got it right. If not, they fix the mistake and talk as a group about what happened.
