These are the Transum resources related to the statement: "Pupils should be taught to solve linear inequalities in 1 {or 2} variable {s}, {and quadratic inequalities in 1 variable}; represent the solution set on a number line, {using set notation and on a graph}".

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.
- Graph Plotter An online tool to draw, display and investigate graphs of many different kinds.

Here are some exam-style questions on this statement:

- "
*The red line in the diagram below shows an inequality. If the variable is \(x\), which inequality best describes \(x\)?*" ... more - "
*(a) Solve 9m < 15m − 12*" ... more - "
*The graph of a quadratic function, \(y=f(x)\) is shown drawn accurately in the following diagram. Write down all the integer solutions of \(f(x) \le 0\).*" ... more - "
*The diagram below is a sketch of \(y = f(x)\) where \(f(x)\) is a quadratic function.*" ... more - "
