    Unit 10 - Systems of Inequalities
     
    Since we began this unit before school closed, you know how easily these problems can be solved on the Desmos Graphing Calculator.  Practice IXL skills T.1, T.3, T.5, and T.6. You don't have to score 100, but having a score of at least 70 shows that you got it!
    There is a video of this lesson in Unified Classroom!!!!!! Click on the "pop-out" to view the video!
     
    Grades are going into the gradebook for the Unit 10 IXL's. If your grade says "exempt", that means that you have passed that skill. If the grade is a "?", that means that you have not yet achieved a score of 70 on that skill, and the grade is still missing. Don't let your missing grades become failing grades! Let's get them done!
