1. OBJECTIVE: How do we graph inequalities?
Do Now

1.) -3x + 12 = -15 x
2.) - 3 = -2

2. Anticipatory Set
1.) What numbers could you substitute for the variable in this
mathematical sentence?
x>3
2.) What numbers can not be substituted for x?
x > 3 is an INEQUALITY- a mathematical sentence that contains
2
3. When an inequality contains a variable, any number that makes that
inequality true is a SOLUTION OF THE INEQUALITY.
In the example x > 3, any number larger than 3 is a SOLUTION TO
THE INEQUALITY.
3.) How would you show that on a number line?
