In this Math in Motion Plus activity, students will write their own program for the TI-Innovator™ Rover.
Students will explore inequalities and the number line while writing code to navigate a set of challenges.
Students will apply their knowledge of compound inequalities to write programs for Rover to demonstrate the inequalities on the number line.
This activity is appropriate for students familiar with graphing inequalities on a number line diagram. Student “Challenge” cards have been provided and can be printed/cut into individual task cards, and distributed to students (optional).
