ONLINE PROJECT 4: Feb.19-22 - Inequalities

Introduction: In a NEW Internet window, go to mathwithmrflisak, then click on the 'ONLINE Math Help' button. On the Math Help Online page, scroll down to see the table of links below. Look for the 'Algebra' heading and go to the very bottom of that column. There, you will find a link named: 'On a Number Line' under the 'Inequalities' title. Click on this link.

Assignment: At the bottom of the internet page there is a number line with 2 blanks above it. On a separate piece of paper, draw the number line that you see and write down the inequality statement that matches it. Then, on the computer, use the drop down menu by the first blank to chose the type of inequality sign. In the second blank, type in a number. Hit the <ENTER> key when you're done. It will tell you if you are correct.

When you check your answer, type in your inequality statement AND some possible values for x. Repeat all this 10 times (at least).
Example: x>=-5 X can be: -5 -4, 0, 6, 1 million, etc.

1, x<-4 x can be: -5, -1000
2.x <=0 x can be : -1, -5000, 0
