As your class is studying inequalities, it's important to thoroughly discuss compound inequalities. Consider using these activities and games to help students understand, solve, and graph compound inequalities.

Sometimes solving problems doesn't mean only getting one answer. When students work with compound inequalities, they learn how to solve problems in which multiple answers are viable. Use these activities and games to help students understand compound inequalities.
