Students practice calculating the slope of a line given two points by completing a math maze!
They draw arrows to show the path that they took to get from the start of the maze to the exit.
This download contains three different mazes for teachers to use to differentiate their instruction.
Level 1 maze questions were designed for students who are struggling to pick up this concept. All x coordinates, y coordinates, and final answers will be positive. Students also will not need to simplify any fractions they get to find their answer.
Level 2 maze questions were designed for the average student. Students may work with some x coordinates or y coordinates that are negative. In addition the slope they find might be negative. Finally, students may need to simplify the fraction they get to find their answer.
Level 3 maze questions were designed for stronger students as an enrichment activity. The x and y coordinates in these problems are significantly greater than in previous levels (I like telling my students that if they really understand a skill or concept they should be able to do it with any numbers, regardless of how big or small they are). In addition, students may get “special” slopes, like “0” or “undefined.”
Feel free to click the preview to see how the levels build off one another.
