Constructing a number sentence from a real world situation is a critical step in using mathematics in everyday life. Checking the validity of a number sentence, which can either be an equation or an inequality, is an important skill to develop. The proper recognition and understanding of the relationship that exists among the components of a number sentence is the key in developing and strengthening one’s problem-solving and analytical skills. Learn what makes a number sentence true or false by helping Zippy find his dog, Strumpy, who ran into an old abandoned amusement park as he figures out the truth of the number sentences written on the electrical box and the ferris wheel’s control panel.
