Unit 5

Expressions, equations, inequalities (one-step, one-variable only)


  • Solving an equation means finding the value of the variable that makes the number sentence mathematically true.
  • Solve and graph inequalities (Solving an equality means finding the values that make the number sentence mathematically true).
  • Solve word problems using inequalities and interpret the solution.


  • Equation, inequality, variable, one-variable, two-step, one-step, greater than (>), less than (<), equal to (=)
