Type: Lesson/Unit Plan

Overview:

In Module 4, Topic H, students use their prior knowledge from Module 1 to construct tables of independent and dependent values in order to analyze equations with two variables from real-life contexts. They represent equations by plotting the values from the table on a coordinate grid (5.G.A.1, 5.G.A.2, 6.RP.A.3a, 6.RP.A.3b, 6.EE.C.9). The module concludes with students referring to true and false number sentences in order to move from solving equations to writing inequalities that represent a constraint or condition in real-life or mathematical problems (6.EE.B.5, 6.EE.B.8). Students understand that inequalities have infinitely many solutions and represent those solutions on number line diagrams.
