Interpreting The Solution To An Algebraic Inequality

Make Connections

Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about other classmates' solutions, and their interpretations of the solutions.

Hint:

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • Why did you use the “less than” symbol instead of the “less than or equal to” symbol?
  • Why did you reverse the inequality sign?
  • Why didn’t you reverse the inequality sign?
  • Why isn’t “–1” a solution to the problem?
