In today's snapshot, we take a look at the topic of Inequalities. Many of the processes involving inequalities you should recognise from equations. In the case of inequalities, the = sign is replaced with four different symbols (<, >, ≤, ≥). You need to remember that inequalities show a range of values that your unknown might be (x) not just one specific value. You need to be able to represent inequalities on a number line deciding whether or not to fill the circle in. You solve and graph inequalities in the same way as an equation.
Today is the first day in our countdown to exams and we are focusing on Place Value and Numberlines. These are 2 topic areas of particular importance for foundation level students as they offer the opportunity to secure some key marks, potentially early on in the paper.
