You are the last resistance to the alien invasion. Change the standard linear equations to the slope intercept form and use the slope and y-intercept of each missile to draw a line. The lines will hit the aliens at the impact point . Substitute the x-value of the ordered pair where the missile hits the alien ship into the equation and verify that it gives the y-value for the point. You can return to base and turn in this assignment when all the aliens are defeated.
Students try to stop the invading aliens. This activity can be used as a group or independent activity. The students graph lines after converting from standard to slope intercept form using the slope and y intercept of different equations to intersect targeting points of each alien ship on the graph. The student verifies the ordered pair of each hit by substituting in for x and solving for y.
