This bundle includes 4 sorting activities covering slope, y=mx+b equations, functions and systems of linear equations. The 4 activities are linked below:
Slope Sorting Activity: Identifying Slope in Different Forms
Slope comes in many forms. This activity helps students identify slope when it is presented in different ways. Students work in pairs to cut, sort then paste different representations of slope (tables, graphs, equations, coordinate pairs and triangles) into 6 categories: slope 0 through slope 4 and undefined slope.
Equation Sorting Activity: Identifying y=mx+b equations
Students sort slope-intercept (y=mx+b) equations onto their corresponding graphs in this activity. Students work either alone or in pairs to cut, sort and paste different y=mx+b equations onto the graphs that they describe.
Function Sorting Activity: Identifying Solutions in Different Forms
Functions have exactly 1 output (y) for every input (x). Solutions to functions come in different forms. This activity helps students identify function solutions when presented in different ways. Students work in pairs to cut, sort then paste different representations of functions (tables, graphs, equations, scatter plots) into 3 categories: Solution (2, 1), Solution (2, 2), Solution 2, 3).
Systems of Equations Sorting Activity: Identifying Systems in Different Forms
While reinforcing students' ability to find slopes and equations in 2-variables, this activity asks students to identify types of systems of equations (with 1 solution, no solution and infinite solutions) when data is presented in tables, graphs, sets of coordinate pairs and pairs of equations. In order to determine how many solutions are represented in 2 tables or in 2 coordinate pairs, students will first have to find the slopes and equations of the data or sketch graphs.
