- One-step equations and inequalities
- Two-step equations and inequalities
- Multi-step equations and inequalities
- Special case for inequalities (when you have to flip the inequality sign)
By forcing them to do the mirror-image problems, the message is explicit: you solve both problems with the same steps. Along with reviewing all of the problems, the purpose of this project is indeed to draw the clear connection between solving the two types of problems. I told students to keep the title and "how to solve" sections the same as what's on the directions, but to change the examples (helpfully outlined in boxes) to their own
Regular readers will probably note that this isn't all that different from the Linear Equation Formula Book project I shared last week; indeed, one student that I have in both classes made the same connection fairly quickly. That's because it's not really all that different. But that's okay.
