Ways of Thinking: Make Connections
Take notes about your classmates' explanations for solving each inequality and summarize them into the properties of inequalities.
As your classmates present, ask questions such as:
- What does solving an inequality mean?
- Why did you change the direction of the sign?
- How did you decide whether or not to fill in the circle on the number line?
- If the inequality symbol was an equals sign, how would your answer be similar? How would it be different?
