This 99 page file includes station activities focused on functions and linear relationships. They are designed to align with common core standards for eighth grade math. You save 15% when buying the bundle as compared to all the activities purchased individually. As I add more activities, I will increase the price accordingly, but you will still have access to the file for no additional cost!! I've also included 5 pages of organizational tips and best practices for station learning in the classroom.
I created these activities to use in station rotations in an eighth grade classroom. However, they can easily be used in a variety of ways. You will find activities within this file also suitable for math centers, game day, formative assessment, or summative assessment. These activities cover:
Unit 6: Functions
Unit 7: Introduction to Linearity
As students rotate through stations, they are challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. I have included instructions for you as well as printable student directions for each activity. Whenever appropriate, answer keys are also attached. The following resources are included in this file:
1. Stations Organization and Tips (5 Pages!)
2. Math Match - Functions (36 Cards!)
CCSS.8: F.A.1, F.A.2
3. Pick-A-Card - Functions (6 Scenarios!)
CCSS.8: F.A.2, F.A.3, F.A.4, F.B.5
4. Spin-Off - Functions (Unique Comparisons for Each Student!)
CCSS.8: F.A.2, F.A.3
5. I Have Who Has - Functions (15 Cards!)
CCSS.8: F.A.1, F.A.2, F.A.3, F.B.4, F.B.5
6. Poly-Problem-Solver - Slope (4 Versions!)
CCSS.8: F.A.3, F.B.4
7. Problem-Solving - Linearity
CCSS.8: EE.B.5, EE.B.6
8. Roundabout - Linear Relationships (4 Versions!)
CCSS.8: F.B.4, F.B.5
9. Three of a Kind - Linear Relationships (Open-Ended!)
CCSS.8: F.B.4, F.B.5
When I decided to give stations a try in my classroom I was amazed at how EASY it was to differentiate instruction. This was something I always struggled with in the past. I was also amazed at how much actual problem solving practice my students were doing in class, without my directing their every move.

Common Core Standards in this resource file include:
Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways. For example, compare a distance-time graph to a distance-time equation to determine which of two moving objects has greater speed.
Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b.
Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is the set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output.1
Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions). For example, given a linear function represented by a table of values and a linear function represented by an algebraic expression, determine which function has the greater rate of change.
Interpret the equation y = mx + b as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear. For example, the function A = s2 giving the area of a square as a function of its side length is not linear because its graph contains the points (1,1), (2,4) and (3,9), which are not on a straight line.
Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (x, y) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values.
Describe qualitatively the functional relationship between two quantities by analyzing a graph (e.g., where the function is increasing or decreasing, linear or nonlinear). Sketch a graph that exhibits the qualitative features of a function that has been described verbally.
