Big Idea: We can write inequalities to represent to relationships between quantities. Students will apply their knowledge of functional relationships to write inequalities using constraints presented in real life situations and identify viable solutions. Functions will be a fundamental concept in algebra and future high school math courses. NOTE: function notation is addressed in later lessons. Vocabulary: function, ordered pair, constraints, viable solution Special Materials: graph paper as an optional strategy to writing equations
