# Solving Inequations

The start of the lesson is used to review deriving inequalities from number lines.  The development phase builds on this by using number lines to represent a range of solutions for inequations.  As learning progresses students move on to solving inequations involving brackets and negatives using the balance method.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to solve a two step linear inequation and represent the solutions on a number line.
• Most students should be able to solve a linear inequation involving brackets and represent the solutions on a number line.
• Some students should be able to solve a linear inequation between two boundaries and represent the solutions on a number line.
