Give your students engaging practice with the circuit format! This 20-question circuit will require your students to determine the slope (rate of change) given various representations of the (mostly linear) functions. Points, graphs, tables, stories -- these are just a few of the types of questions students will answer.
No technology is needed to work this circuit, though you may decide you want your students to use calculators to speed them up or to make them more accurate (it depends on your objective). I wrote this circuit for algebra one students but I can imagine pre-algebra, algebra two or even college algebra students getting a lot out of these exercises.
To advance in the circuit, students hunt for their answer and that becomes the next problem. My students talk talk talk and effortlessly lean over to help each other. You will love the sound of your classroom as your students work through a circuit! Mine do not get up when the bell rings!
There is no answer key included because the answers are embedded in the circuit. The only prep the teacher needs to to is work the circuit ahead of the students to determine how / where it fits in their lesson. The circuit could be used for anything from guided notes to independent practice to a scavenger hunt to a review before the test.
