This Compound Inequalities Question Stack is a great self-checking activity to give your algebra students some much-needed practice with solving and graphing compound inequalities on a number line. I originally created this activity to use with my Algebra 1 students. If you are thinking to yourself that “Sarah hasn’t taught Algebra 1 in years,” you …

I find that one of my most-referenced set of posters in my classroom is these equality and inequality symbols posters. If you checked out my recent post with the photos of my classroom from this past 2021-2022, you might not remember seeing them. That’s because I took them down to hang up my Powers Posters. …

I created this graphing inequalities work mat when I taught Algebra 1 to help my students conceptualize what it actually meant to graph an inequality. So often, I have a tendency to just give my students a set of steps to follow without making sure they understand why we are following those steps. Why are …

I created this systems of inequalities foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. This foldable gave us some quality coloring time! I found that having my students use two different colors (one for each inequality) helped them find the overlapping area. Free Download of Systems of Inequalities Foldable

Our last skill in our linear graphing unit was to write linear inequalities. I created this foldable to give students practice writing inequalities given a graph. Students were given a graph, and they had to write the matching inequality. Free Download of Writing Inequalities Given a Graph Foldable

Yesterday, we started exploring the idea of graphing linear inequalities. We’ve been graphing linear equations for a month now, so it was time to branch out a bit. I created a graphing two variable inequalities dry erase template for my 11 x 17 dry erase pockets to help students understand what it means for a point …

We started out solving absolute value inequalities by gluing a set of steps for solving absolute value inequalities in our interactive notebooks. Next, we moved straight on to a whole bunch of practice using this solving absolute value inequalities graphic organizer I created to help my Algebra 1 students organize their work. We ended up …

I created these graphic organizers to give my Algebra 1 students some structured practice solving equations/inequalities with variables on both sides of the equal sign. We started out by gluing in a set of steps to our interactive notebooks. I created six practice problems for my students to work through together. This year I am …

I created these compound inequalities graphic organizers to give my Algebra 1 students practice solving compound inequalities. We completed these graphic organizers after our compound inequalities foldable. We only did four practice problems in our notebooks for compound inequalities. I think we should have done more. Here are close-ups of each: Free Download of Compound …

We did six practice problems in our notebook over solving equations/inequalities with variables on one side. Students stapled these problems together and glued them on a single page. Some students even chose to staple their paper with the steps on top of the practice problems to condense things even further. I kinda like this approach! …
