RAFT Row 2
Objective: To show students a new way on how to solve inequality word problems in an actual school setting using a power point.
TX State Standard-Algebra I: T. 4 Linear Inequalities: Word Problems
ISTE Standard-1. Creativity and Innovation (a,b,d), 3. Research and Information fluency (a), 4. Critical thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making (a,b,c,d), 6. Technology Applications and Concepts (a,b)
Student Role: Teacher
Audience: Students
Format: PowerPoint
Topic: What is the new way to teach students how to work inequality word problems?
Directions:
- If you have not learned how to solve inequalities this will help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE22xKvi2fI
- Do a rough draft before you start your powerpoint
- Then create your powerpoint to present to students
- Once finished create another slide to explain in detail why you may have done what you did.
- Next be sure to put your previous video into slide to help show students why they are teaching them this way.
- Present to class

Assessment:
Create a PowerPoint from a teachers perspective to present to students on a new way of working inequality word problems.
You will be given 20 points based on the following: PowerPoint, presentation to students, presentation to your class, explanation of your PowerPoint, and ability to work problems correctly.
RAFT Row 3
Objective: You are a former student explaining to future children about why it is important to learn how to solve Inequality word problems.
TX State Standard-Algebra I: T. 4 Linear Inequalities: Word Problems

Student Role: Former student
Audience: Students/Children
Format: Conversational paper
Topic: How to talk to a child going through a difficult time in solving inequality word problems and explaining why it is important that they learn how to do it.
Directions:
- Figure out how to solve inequality word problems. This may help https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE22xKvi2fI
- Write a rough draft about how a conversation might go between an adult and a child with regards to solving inequalities.
- Then with as much detail as possible type that conversation
- Next turn in and present to class
