# Lesson Plan: Multistep Inequalities Mathematics • 7th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to solve multistep inequalities.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• solve multistep linear inequalities in one variable with the variable only on one side of the inequality,
• solve multistep linear inequalities in one variable with the variable on both sides of the inequality,
• represent the solution to a multistep linear inequality on a number line, where the solutions are in the natural numbers or integers.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• two-step inequalities,
• solving multistep equations,
• what happens to the inequality when
• adding a constant to both sides of the inequality,
• multiplying/dividing each side of the inequality by a positive number,
• multiplying/dividing each side of the inequality by a negative number.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• two-sided inequalities,
• nonlinear inequalities,
• real-world multistep inequality problems,
• irrational numbers,
• representing solutions on a number line, where the solutions are in the rational numbers.
