This activity consists of ten cards, each with a different slope and a different y-intercept. The functions are represented in a variety of formats: equations, graphs, tables, ordered pairs and situations.
There are many ways to use these cards:
Give each table a set of cards and ask them to put them in order, from the smallest slope to the largest OR from the smallest initial value to the largest.
Alternately, you can give the students two or three of the cards and ask them to compare the slopes AND the initial values.
These also serve as a good review for finding slope from a variety of representations and calculating the y-intercept from two points or a table of values.
You can even use two of the cards for a compare/contrast functions writing prompt, as a center for reviewing linear functions or as function flashcards!
