This is a team task that takes about a week. The students work together with a guided task checklist.
They start with by graphing a line from two points and writing the equation in slope-intercept form. This is the main street in their city.
The students then use the equation in slope-intercept form to write equations using point-slope form, parallel and perpendicular lines.
They are given instructions on the placement of city buildings and they create a town based on the concepts of linear graphs. This task helps the students see the relationships between standard form, slope-intercept form, point-slope form, and parallel and perpendicular lines.
There are two versions included with different starting points and each version will have different outcomes.
Included is a blackline master guided task worksheet in doc and pdf formats, a practice graph, student poster samples and answer keys to the guided checklists.
