These worksheets are designed for students to do while working with a partner. Each student should work independently to solve their own problem on their half of the worksheet. After finding their own answer, students should compare the answer they obtained with their partner’s answer. Each partner should get the same final answer for each numbered problem, although they solved a different question.
The teacher can allow the students to work together in a variety of ways. The teacher could cut apart each worksheet and only give each student half of the piece of paper and then allow them to compare at the end of the activity. Or, the teacher could give each set of two students one piece of paper. Then, the students could compare as soon as they are both done.
Set A & B are writing equations of lines using two points and using a point and a slope. (4 questions for each partner to solve – 8 total questions)
