Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free graphing inequalities worksheet of 30+ questions and answers
Inequalities can be represented graphically. This is useful as it allows us to look for solutions which satisfy more than one inequality at a time. To represent inequalities graphically, we draw the relevant line on a grid and can identify the solutions to the inequality through shading.
The type of inequality symbol is important and inequalities that have a > or < symbol are drawn with a dotted line whereas those that have a or symbol are drawn with a solid line.
For example, the inequality x<1 is represented by drawing the line x=1 (using a dotted line). Since x is less than 1, the solution to the inequality is the area to the left of the line. The inequality y>x+2 can be represented by drawing the line y=x+2 (a solid line). The solution is the line and the area above the line. Single variable inequalities will be indicated by horizontal lines or vertical lines and inequalities in both x and y will be indicated by diagonal lines.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional inequalities worksheets and other algebra worksheets, for example a sequences worksheet, simultaneous equations worksheet or straight line graphs worksheet.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
Help your students feel confident with exam-style questions and the strategies they’ll need to answer them correctly with our dedicated GCSE maths revision programme.
Lessons are selected to provide support where each student needs it most, and specially-trained GCSE maths tutors adapt the pitch and pace of each lesson. This ensures a personalised revision programme that raises grades and boosts confidence.
