Looking for a fun, NO-PREP, NO-GRADING activity to help your algebra students rewrite linear equations from standard form to slope-intercept form? Your students will love the instant feedback with this set of 30 digital task cards (What are Boom Cards?). Students are shown one question at a time and get instant feedback on their answers. Check out the free preview to see how they work. (Make sure to click the full-size preview.)
*This is a scaffolded deck that increases in difficulty*
The first few cards are designed to help students identify the difference between standard form and slope-intercept form of a linear equation. An example is given to show how to change an equation from standard form to slope-intercept form.
Students then are asked to write equations in slope-intercept form and enter the slope and y-intercept separately (great for beginners to see if they're getting only part of the answer incorrect). The remaining cards have students enter the entire equation independently.
This deck includes a few equations that are not technically in standard form. For example, -2x - 3y =18 and 3x + y - 7 = 2. You can hide these cards if you don't want students to see them.
Boom Cards™ work on just about any device that can access the internet. They're self-checking and you can even track student progress through Boom Learning℠! Plus, they're paperless. No printing or laminating required - less prep work for you! You can assign Boom Cards to individual students, groups of students, or use with a Smart Board for the whole class. Check out the links in the preview for more information on Boom Cards and how to start using them in your classroom!
