After days of teaching students about slope-intercept form, how to graph lines, y-intercepts, slope equals rise over run, and so forth, I thought it would be appropriate to give them a "real-life" example, in which one person is saving money, and another is spending money.
Over time, their account balances are equal, and this worksheet "holds their hands" through the steps and asks extension questions.
I use this activity within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.
The file includes spiral review problems.
This worksheet is intended to be written on directly.
Please download the pdf preview file first, so you can see exactly what's included; the product file is a word document, which you may personalize for your students.
