A Lesson on Solving Absolute Value Equations and Inequalities

Author: Sarah Devereaux
Description:

Students will be able to solve absolute value equations and inequalities.

Students will be able to graph the solutions of an absolute value inequality.

Students will be able to check solutions and look for extraneous solutions.

The students will be watching a video on how to solve absolute value equations. The video will show them the process for solving and how to check their answers. This will also teach them how to find extraneous solutions and what an extraneous solution is. The video will also show students how to write and solve absolute value inequalities and how to know if it will be an and or an or. Finally the video will show the students how to take the solutions of the absolute value inequalities and graph them.
