Inequalities

Inequality isn’t always bad! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to mathematical inequalities. You’ll find out what an inequality shows and the different symbols used to express them — as well as the symbols used when a number might express an equivalency. You’ll also find out how to remember these symbols, and the words that tell you what kind of relationship you’re dealing with. Finally, you’ll learn how to write an inequality that has both a maximum and a minimum limit!
