## Reflection: Homework Writing and Graphing Inequalities to Represent Constraints - Section 3: Discussion + Closing

My students often need more practice graphing inequalities.  Though I shy away from a lot of skill based worksheets, this might be a good opportunity to give students some practice for homework. Because the ways of graphing inequalities are new to students, spending some time on repetitive problems might actually help them to be more comfortable with graphing inequalities. As a teacher I am always trying to balance conceptual understanding with skill based applications.  I think the skill side could use some additional attention here.
