Videos and lessons to help Grade 6 students learn how to write an inequality of the form x > c  or x < c to represent a constraint or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem. Recognize that inequalities of the form x > c or x < c have infinitely many solutions; represent solutions of such inequalities on number line diagrams.

Common Core: 6.EE.8

Suggested Learning Targets

• I can write inequalities and recognize that inequalitites can have infinite solutions.
• I can represent inequalities on a number line.
• I can identify the constraint or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem in
order to set up an inequality.
• I can recognize that inequalities of the form x>c or x<c have infinitely many solutions.
• I can write an inequality of the form x>c or x<c to represent a constraint or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem.
• I can represent solutions to inequalities or the form x>c or x<c, with infinitely many
solutions, on the number line diagrams
