Activity #1

Find the Region that Satisfies an Inequality on a Number Line.

• Write down at least 5 numbers satisfying the inequality starting with the least number. Answers should be integers only.
• Click in the box to check the region satisfying the inequality.​
• Click on .

• Read the question and decide which expression is correct.
• Check the appropriate box.
• Then check answer box to verify your answer. If it is correct, you’ll get a feedback. If not, try to find out why you missed it.
• Then click .

Activity #2

Match Number Lines with Descriptions.

In this activity, there are three sets of cards to be matched. One set has holders that are red open points, another set has holders that are green open points, and the other set are numbers lines. You goal is to match three cards that are equivalent.

• Start the activity by matching the description with the green open points with the number line. When you discover a matching pair, drag the green point over the blue point. ​
• When all the statements have been matched, match each description with the red open points to the same number line. When you discover a matching pair, drag the red point over the blue point.​
• When done, click .
