IMP Cookies - You are What You Eat and Changing What You Eat

This is once again practice for the students to write and graph inequalities using the constraints given in the activity. The difference in these 2 activities if you have a less than or equal to and a greater than or equal to. This is the first time they have had the shading to go up on any of the graphs. Also, we are looking for a minimum instead of a maximum.

Systems of Inequalities is a difficult concept because of all the "math" involved. I love how this book just keeps giving the students multiple opportunities to write and work with constraints.
