Product Description
Students understand best when they discover formulas on their own. As students work through these stations, they will discover the formula for slope without even realizing it. The objective at all stations is to write rules or directions to teach someone where the values in the ordered pairs go in the fraction to determine the slope. When you come back together for a group discussion, possibly in Socratic Seminar format, challenge students to find common names for the points. If needed, guide them to label points as x1, x2, y1, and y2. This 36 page document includes numerous teacher guide pages to explain and give examples of how to differentiate this lesson. Groups can be made based on overall math ability or topic specific abilities. Options are clearly laid out, as well as a list of materials needed, rotation options, and follow-up questions. There are 20 slope problems with answers. Problems are color coded and sticky notes should be used so students are physically substituting values to determine the formula. 10 of the problems give structured places for values, while the other 10 problems give sets of ordered pairs and answers, and it's up to students to determine 2 different equations. The way the questions are numbered (A1-B10) indicate the type of problem (negatives included vs no negatives, higher absolute values vs smaller absolute values, etc.) Great for resource rooms, in-class support settings, and any general education classroom. If you need me to change colors of the boxes, please contact me (lynz@thetreadwells.com) after your purchase and I will gladly make those changes for you! Please rate and leave feedback!
