Today we began by doing a words-inequality-graph matching activity. This went pretty fast and I was very happy to see that a few of my kids who struggle a lot were very successful on this activity! Love it when kids like this can feel success instead of being frustrated yet again!
Here is a better picture:
Then we played a graphing dice game.
I took my regular dice and put stickers on each side, one for <, >, then < or = and > or =. I don’t know how to do the fancy symbols on here 🙂 I also did double of two of them to fill the six sides. I gave each group one of these dice and one regular die. The students had to roll the inequality die to get the symbol, then the number die to get the number, then graph that inequality. I had several students tell me that they loved it and it was fun! Yay!
