Unit 6: Equations & Inequalities

Overview

Ever wondered how to teach equations and inequalities in an engaging way to your 6th-grade students?

In this unit plan, students will first learn about representing quantitative relationships between independent and dependent variables. Later on, they will build on this knowledge to verify solutions to equations and inequalities. Lastly, they will learn to solve one-step equations with positive solutions and write and graph one-step inequalities.

Each lesson helps students master the unit through artistic, interactive guided notes, check for understanding, and culminates with a real-life example that explores how equations and inequalities are applied in various contexts. It's an exciting way to teach equations and inequalities while comprehensively meeting standards.
