Lesson Plan: One-step Inequalities: Multiplication or Division Mathematics • 6th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to write and solve one-step linear inequalities by multiplication or division.

Objectives

Students will be able to

• deduce the multiplication property of inequalities, which is that when multiplying or dividing both sides of an inequality by the same number, the inequality stays balanced,
• deduce the division property of inequalities, which is that both sides of an inequality can be multiplied or divided by a positive number without changing the inequality’s direction,
• understand that if both sides of an inequality are multiplied or divided by a negative number, the direction will be changed,
• know that solving one-step inequalities means finding the unknown value to make the statement true,
• use rules to solve one-step inequalities.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• the properties of operations in and ,
• the meaning of variable and constant.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

• inequalities with more than one unknown,
• solving inequalities of the second or third degree.
