PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this performance task, students take on the role as a member of the student activities committee with the task to plan the 8th grade dinner-dance. This task utilizies the concept of writing linear equations in slope-intercept form given the slope and y-intercept, a point and a slope, two points, and also utilizing standard form.

It is a great end to the linear equations unit in which students must apply their knowledge. A solution and rubric is included.

Note: This performance task is part of my Linear Equations Activities Bundle here on TpT. Check it out if you are in need of more resources!

This is looks like a great performance task to assess my students' abilities involving linear equations This will be a great assessment by helping students putting all the "pieces together" and enable students to see how graphs, equations, formulas, and coordinate points all work together. Super product!!
