Product Description
This contains 3 pages. Each page has a different equation in standard form. Each page walks the students through graphing using a table and plugging in values, graphing using the intercept method, and graphing using slope-intercept form. This is helpful for students that are struggling because of the similarities and differences between the 3 methods.

I used these problems with groups of three. Each student in the group started with a different equation. I had the students do the first method for one equation, then pass the paper and do the second method with their new paper with a different equation on it. We rotated until all three methods had been used to graph the same line by three different students. When they were done, they had to compare to see if all three graphs looked the same. This was a great way for students to recognize if they were correct or had made mistakes. They had to work as a group to correct any mistakes on any of the three different equations.
