B Block Methods B (Day 2) Thurs., Dec. 12 — Systems of Lienar Inequalities

Today: We talked about how to write a ystem of inequalities, graph it, and …  well, that’s all we had time for.  We were supposed to be able to think about what the different solutions mean, consider what information we can get from them, and make sure we are staying within the focus of the context of the problem.  Maybe next class.

Homework: p. 414/ 1, 7, 17; choose two word problems and set them up.  If you can graph them and analyze the solutions, go for it.

Next Class: We will continue working with systems of linear inequalities.
