The New School

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
Mathematics is a powerful tool when modeling constraints. A challenging task expects learners to write three inequalities based on a set of restrictions. The resulting constraints represent a system of linear inequalities.
Lesson Planet

Sugar and Protein

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
Give some food for thought! Scholars investigate constraints on the cost, the amount of sugar, and the amount of protein for some school lunches. A set of inequalities lets them express the constraints mathematically.
