“Learning Checks” Questions Parents Can Use to Assess Understanding What is an equation and how is it similar and/or different from an inequality? What is an inequality and how is it similar and/or different from expressions and equations? How can I determine if given value(s) provide solution(s) to an equation or inequality? What strategies can I use to determine the solution to a one-step equation? How can I translate word phrases and sentences to mathematical expressions, equations, or inequalities? How does the solution to an equation relate to the solutions of an inequality? How can I represent the solution to an equation or inequality on a number line?
