Name: Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities: Linear Inequalities in One Variable
ID: m21979
Language: English (en)
Summary: This module is from Elementary Algebra by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. In this chapter, the emphasis is on the mechanics of equation solving, which clearly explains how to isolate a variable. The goal is to help the student feel more comfortable with solving applied problems. Ample opportunity is provided for the student to practice translating words to symbols, which is an important part of the "Five-Step Method" of solving applied problems (discussed in modules ((Reference)) and ((Reference))). Objectives of this module: understand the meaning of inequalities, be able to recognize linear inequalities, know, and be able to work with, the algebra of linear inequalities and with compound inequalities.
