Linear Equations & Slope-Intercept Form - Fun Practice / Review Activity:

If students graph all the lines correctly, the page folds up into a paper airplane!

This activity is a fun way for your class to practice using slope of a line and graphing using Slope-Intercept Form. One version also includes reflections of lines on the coordinate plane.

** This item is part of a larger DISCOUNTED bundle: Slope and Graphing Linear Equations Bundle

Students graph lines and complete a short worksheet, then follow the directions to fold along their lines to create a paper airplane.

Three versions of the worksheet are included:

* In the first version of the worksheet, some lines are graphed using a given equation, and some are graphed by reflecting a previous line. Students then must give the equation of the reflected line.

* In the second version, all lines are graphed using a given equation in slope-intercept form. Students also complete a chart identifying the slope and y-intercept of each line.

* In the third version, some equations must be manipulated before they are in slope-intercept form. Then students can graph the lines.

Choose the version that is appropriate for your class (or some of each for easy differentiation). Print one worksheet and one coordinate plane sheet per student.

For younger students, try the more basic Coordinate Planes activity on plotting points (ordered pairs): Coordinate PLANES: Paper Airplanes from Plotting Points
