Shading Regions Examples

What is the resource?

This PDF focuses on representing inequalities as shaded areas on graphs. This skill is best for secondary school learners.


Why are shading regions important?

Inequalities often model real-life situations with various possible solutions:

  • Acceptable ranges: Think of quality control – measurements within a 'good' range.
  • Costs & budgets: You might graph price options that meet a maximum cost.
  • Data comparison: Showing multiple restrictions at once is clearer on a graph.


Why is the resource helpful?

This resource goes beyond textbook problems. It offers:

  • Clear visuals: Step-by-step examples build from single to multiple inequalities.
  • Real-life links: Connect shaded regions to scenarios students can grasp.
  • Practice variety: Different kinds of questions keep students engaged.
  • Visual problem-solving: Offers a tool for tackling tough word problems.
  • Printable PDF: Ideal for consolidating skills in class or during revision.

This resource helps bridge the gap between the abstract maths of inequalities and their practical applications.
