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!
