Compound Inequalities Question Stack Activity

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 …

Solving Equations/Inequalities with Variables on Both Sides Graphic Organizers

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 …

Compound Inequalities Graphic Organizers

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 …

Solving Equations/Inequalities with Variables On One Side Graphic Organizers

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! …

Compound Inequalities Foldable

I created this compound inequalities foldable to introduce the topic to my Algebra 1 students. We glued the resulting foldable in our interactive notebooks. I have NEVER been happy with how I’ve taught compound inequalities in the past.  I’ve never really given my students as reason for why we need to even deal with compound …

Reviewing One Variable Inequalities

On Friday, my Algebra 1 students started to review inequalities.  It was so refreshing to see them realize that this was something they had studied last year in 8th grade.  A few students mentioned that they had never figured out how to do these problems last year, and they asked lots of awesome questions. Including …

One Variable Inequalities Square Puzzle Activity

I want to highlight this one variable inequalities square puzzle shared by Public Schools of North Carolina in their Resources for Algebra Blackline Masters collection (page 1 of PDF). The file no longer exists online, but an archived version still exists due to the Internet Archive. These square puzzles are often known as “Tarsia puzzles.” …
