Background Tutorials

communicate mathematical ideas, reasoning, and their implications using multiple representations, including symbols, diagrams, graphs, and language as appropriate

Inequalities come up all the time when you're working algebra problems. In this tutorial you'll learn what an inequality is, and you'll see all the common inequality symbols that you're likely to see :)

Determine the slope of a line given a table of values, a graph, two points on the line, and an equation written in various forms, including y = mx + b, ax + by = c, and y - y1 = m(x - x1)

Graphing a function? It would be really helpful if you had a table of values that fit your equation. You could plot those values on a coordinate plane and connect the point to make your graph. See it all in this tutorial!

Graph the solution set of linear inequalities in two variables on the coordinate plane

There are many different ways to solve a system of inequalities. In this tutorial, you'll see how to solve such a system by graphing both inequalities and finding their intersection. Check it out!
