For this shot week we will begin by continuing our work with building one-step inequalities when given short phrases, sentences and real world situations. I will assess them this week on one-step inequalities focusing on building them from these scenarios. We will then move on to solving two step inequalities. The only thing to stress is that when you have to multiply or divide each side of the inequality by a negative value the inequality symbol must be reversed. This week will hopefully conclude our unit on equations and inequalities. An exam over the unit will be the week of the 14th-18th.
