Algebra 3-4 Multi-Step InequalitiesDecember 1, 2009
Presentation: Spiral notes with glue-in prompts
We did a combination of having them write in their spirals for the basic two-(or more) step inequalities, and then we gave them little cutout word problems to paste into their spirals. We then went over what the key words were in each problem, how the solution to the problem would look in English, and then how to translate that into Algebra and solve.
I’m not sure I’d want to do this all the time, but I thought it made a nice change-up from either all handwritten notes or holey notes. Especially after going through the word problems, they seemed to have a better grasp of the important words and how they fit together. We’ll see.
