Let's practice how to graph one-variable and two-variable inequalities and how to determine the symbolic representation of an inequality given a verbal statement.

**TEKS Standards and Student Expectations**

**A(2)** Linear functions, equations, and inequalities. The student applies the mathematical process standards when using properties of linear functions to write and represent in multiple ways, with and without technology, linear equations, inequalities, and systems of equations. The student is expected to:

**A(2)(C)** write linear equations in two variables given a table of values, a graph, and a verbal description

**A(2)(****H)** write linear inequalities in two variables given a table of values, a graph, and a verbal description**Resource Objective(s)**

Given a problem situation in verbal form, students will write an inequality that can be used to represent the situation.

**Essential Questions**

What words mean less than/less than or equal to?

What words mean greater than/greater than or equal to?

What are the four different inequality symbols and what do they represent?

**Vocabulary**

- Inequality
- Equation
- Slope-Intercept Form
- Standard Form
