These are the Transum resources related to the statement: "Solve linear and quadratic inequalities in a single variable and interpret such inequalities graphically, including inequalities with brackets and fractions. Express solutions through correct use of 'and' and 'or', or through set notation. Represent linear and quadratic inequalities such as y > x + 1 and y > ax^{2} + bx + c graphically".

Here are some specific activities, investigations or visual aids we have picked out. Click anywhere in the grey area to access the resource.

- Inequalities Check that you know what inequality signs mean and how they are used to compare two quantities. Includes negative numbers, decimals, fractions and metric measures.
- Linear Programming A selection of linear programming questions with an interactive graph plotting tool.

Here are some exam-style questions on this statement:
