Common Core State Standards for mathematics Grade 7 .4. Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities. b. Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form px + q > r or px + q < r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers.
Students that have used the internet are very creative about entering a destination in MapQuest and the
searching "nearby" locations for meals and optional stops.
Students may need some instruction on inequalities. For example they may easily understand greater than
or equal too for transportation costs but fail to understand how a local attraction with no admission can
be represented as an inequality. Consider suggesting greater than or equal to zero is more appropriate and
leaving a tip at the bakery.
Another suggestion is to work with the expert group for transportation about choosing to list all
mileage as beginning to ending destinations. Or possibly a one way trip that is multiplied by two.
The admission as an inequality might be the possibility of a student being absent or a bus driver that chooses
not to attend the museum.
