Note from the author:
A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU. The outlined content above was added from outside of Formative. 1

Is (-1, 4) a solution of the inequality? Explain.

No. Substituting the ordered pair (-1, 4) into the inequality makes it false.
Yes. Substituting the ordered pair (-1, 4) into the inequality makes it true.

Graph the linear inequality on the canvas below by hand, without the aid of a graphing utility.
After that, graph the inequality on the embedded Desmos graphing calculator above.
As always, include important graph detail: label the axes, indicate axis scale by labeling at least one value on each axis, add arrows to the ends of lines, ensure that your line is appropriately dashed or solid, and shade one side of the boundary line, as appropriate.

Writing: To graph the inequality below, do you shade above or below the boundary line? Explain.

Below; The inequality sign < indicates all values less than. y-values decrease as you move down a coordinate plane.
Above; The inequality sign < indicates all values less than. y-values decrease as you move down a coordinate plane.
