This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 10, Unit 7, Grade 6. In this activity, students describe unbalanced hanger diagrams with inequalities. Students construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others during partner and whole-class discussions about how unknown values relate to each other. Arrange students in groups of 2. Give students 7 minutes quiet work time, followed by 3-5 minutes for partner discussion. Tell students to check in with their partners and, if there are disagreements, work to come to an agreement.
