Equations and Inequalities

   Image result for math images

Seventh grade mathematics is about (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships;  (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples.

Jeopardy Question and Answer

Thur, April 27
True or False

1.  At most means less than or equal to.
2.  To solve equations or inequalities, use Marcoco.
3. To distribute a negative by a negative, it becomes a positive.
4.  To combine like terms, only refers to working one side of an equation or inequality at a time.
5.  When going across the line, use additive inverses, then multiplicative inverses.
6.  When solving inequalities, only switch the direction of the inequality sign if you multiply or divide both sides by a negative number.
7.  Either < or > requires an open circle and is not a solution.
8.  When reading from the variable, less than means to shade to the left
9.  To check a solution, plug the number into the original problem, and then simplify each side by using PEMDAS.
10.  When checking a solution, if it comes out to be a true statement then the solution IS a solution to the equation or inequality.
