There’s not always just one solution to a math problem. Sometimes there is a whole set of solutions! This is the case when graphing linear inequalities. In Linear Inequalities students will explore the difference between graphing linear equations and graphing linear inequalities. Students will use their preexisting knowledge of linear equations as a solid foundation for learning about linear inequalities.

Interactive graphs allow students to create boundary lines, select line types, and shade regions to represent the solutions to inequalities. They are then challenged to apply this concept to problem solving situations as they define variables, create an inequality, graph the inequality and use the graph to produce a solution set. A great follow up to this activity with Solving Systems of Linear Inequalities.
