Unit 4, Lesson 33# From Equations to Inequalities

EngageNY 45 min(s)

It is true if the numbers calculated on each side of the inequality sign result in a correct statement and is false otherwise. Students understand solving an inequality is answering the question of which values from a specified set, if any, make the inequality true. What value(s) does the variable have to represent for the equation or inequality to result in a true number sentence? Students move from naming the values that make the sentence true or false to using a set of numbers and determining whether or not the numbers in the set make the equation or inequality true or false.
