Solving 1-Variable Inequations Graphically
Solving inequations that involve one variable can be done either purely algebraically or graphically. The algebraic procedure can be somewhat cumbersome, whereas the graphical method is more intuitive. The next three lessons show the graphical method that can be used to solve 1-variable inequations involving an absolute value, a square root, or a rational expression.
At the end of these lessons you be able to:
• Find the solution set for a 2-variable absolute-valued inequation
• Find the solution set for a 1-variable radical inequation
• Find the solution set for a 1-variable rational inequation
Solving linear inequations in two variables is generally done by graphing the solution set. This lesson summarizes the procedures for creating such graphs.
At the end of the this lesson you will be able to:
• Graph the boundary and shade the appropriate region that satisfies a linear inequation in general form or system of linear in equations in general form
Investigation of Operations on Functions Activities
In this interactive Desmos activity, students can spend time going deeper into the effects of the various operations on functions, in which they not only discover new functions, but see familiar ones in new ways, ex. a quadratic as a product of two linear functions.
The following GeoGebra activity will allow students to investigate the effect of the various operations on various functions. Change f(x) and g(x) as you wish, then click to see the operation you wish. You can also hide the original functions to get a better look at the result.
