Promote Systems of Linear Inequalities with Real-World Problems

Thomas Edwards, Kenneth Chelst 

February 1999, Volume 92, Issue 2, Page 118

Abstract:
Because operations researchers solve problems in the real world, operations-research-based problems have rich connections to the world in which students live and work. Drawing on such problem situations is one way in which teachers can let applications of mathematics drive instruction. We believe that doing so will better motivate students to learn the mathematics they encounter in the classroom.
