Graphing and Solving Inequalities

Graphing and Solving Inequalities

All things are not created equal--at least in math! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will show you how to map out equations that compare unequal expressions. You’ll learn how to use the special symbols that show when one side of an equation is less than or greater than the other side. Tim will also show you how inequalities are affected by multiplication, addition, division, and subtraction. You’ll see how multiplying and dividing negative numbers affects the direction of the inequality symbol, too! Tim will walk you through the use of variables in inequalities, and how to solve them. Finally, you’ll see how to graph your solutions. So watch this movie; it’s less than five minutes long!

## Probability and Data Analysis Lesson Plan: What Are the Chances?

In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 3-12, students review probability and data analysis skills learned throughout a unit of study. Students then create a paper-based or digital activity that challenges classmates to apply data analysis, graphing, and/or probability skills to fictitious or real-world situations. See more »

## Algebra Concepts and Inequalities Lesson Plan: Height Versus Arm Span

In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 4-8, students use BrainPOP resources to explore inequalities and other related algebra concepts. Students design and conduct an investigation in order to determine and explain the relationship between a person’s height and their arm span. Students will also apply graphing skills to real-world problem solving. See more »
