Unit 4, Lesson 24# True and False Number Sentences (Continued)

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students identify values for the variables in equations and inequalities that result in true number sentences. Students identify values for the variables in equations and inequalities that result in false number sentences. During this lesson, students discover that solutions and solution sets can be represented by a sentence description, leading to (or followed by) the use of equations or inequalities. This transition is preparing students to understand why they rewrite complicated-looking equations and inequalities as simpler ones to describe solutions.
