High School Mathematics Algebra I Part I Unit 3
Subject: MathematicsCourse: Algebra I Part I
Unit 3 Title: Compound Inequalities
This unit will require students to evaluate patterns to write equations, and write and solve one-step and multi-step equations and inequalities given a problem context or a model. Inequalities will be graphed on a number line.
This unit will also require students to determine if an equation is always, sometimes, or never true. The concept of solving multi-step equations is expanded to include literal equations and formulas, many of which are based on science topics. Students are expected to compare and contrast solution methods for a variety of different problem types and communicate their mathematical thinking verbally and in writing.
By the end of Unit 3, all students will be able to:
- write and solve compound inequalities;
- write and solve absolute value inequalities;
- graph the solution sets of compound and absolute value inequalities on a number line;
- interpret solutions to compound and absolute value inequalities in the context of the problem situation.
- manipulate and solve literal equations and formulas.
Write, solve, and/or apply a linear equation (including problem situations).
