Ch 3: Overview of Inequalities: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Overview of Inequalities chapter of this College Algebra Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about inequalities. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach the comprehensive overview of inequalities required in a typical college algebra course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other college algebra work.
  • Identify the inequalities concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our College Algebra Tutoring Solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn inequalities and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding systems of inequalities, how to graph inequalities, solving absolute value inequalities or any other inequalities topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their math learning
  • Prefer learning math visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their overview of inequalities unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in college algebra
  • Don't have access to their math teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning inequalities simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live algebra tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn inequalities on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Learning objectives

  • Define the inequality and learn about inequalities in real life.
  • Understand how to solve and graph 1- and 2-variable inequalities.
  • Study systems of inequalities and compound inequalities.

What is an Inequality?

1. What is an Inequality?

Deciding how to spend your money can be a tricky thing. Should you save it, invest it, or enjoy it? Learn how inequalities can help you make your decision!

How to Graph 1- and 2-Variable Inequalities

2. How to Graph 1- and 2-Variable Inequalities

So an inequality is just an equation with a less than or greater than symbol. But what is the difference between 1 and 2 variable inequalities? What does have a greater than or equal to symbol change? When do you use a number line instead of a coordinate plane? Get those answers here!

Set Notation, Compound Inequalities, and Systems of Inequalities

3. Set Notation, Compound Inequalities, and Systems of Inequalities

In this lesson, we'll explore the conditions of compound inequalities and learn how to express them using set notation and interval notation. Test you knowledge afterward with a short quiz.

Graphing Inequalities: Practice Problems

4. Graphing Inequalities: Practice Problems

If you're already pretty familiar with what inequalities are and just looking for a place to practice your skills, this is the place. This lesson covers topics like 1-variable, 2-variable, compound, and systems of inequalities.

How to Solve and Graph an Absolute Value Inequality

5. How to Solve and Graph an Absolute Value Inequality

Taking two skills and combining them to make a more complicated problem is a classic tactic in mathematics. If you feel confident with absolute values and inequalities, see if you can tackle them with their powers combined here!
