Learning Goals: Create a purpose for solving inequalities, understand that a solution is the value that makes a function true, and connect student strategies to formal inequalities.

HSA.CED.A.1 – Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems. Include equations arising from linear and quadratic functions, and simple rational and exponential functions.

HSA.REI.B.3 – Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.

TEKS (2015-16)

A.5(B) – solve linear inequalities in one variable, including those for which the application of the distributive property is necessary and for which variables are included on both sides
