♥ MAGIC SQUARE - BUNDLE Find the Slope ♥

This is the FIRST product of many to come using "MAGIC SQUARES". It is a FREEBIE to allow you work with the idea. I hope that you like it and come back for more. It is:

★ TEACHER TESTED AND KIDS APPROVED ★
★NO PREP SELF ASSESSING activity.★
★ Great for INDEPENDENT WORK. ★

This activity includes 16 practice problems. Students could work by themselves (self-assessment), with partners, or with groups. This activity helps students to check their understanding of:

Finding the slope of a line from a graph. The slope may be:
• Negative
• positive
• zero
• undefined

The coordinates of the ordered pairs are all integers.

The formula m = Rise/Run will be emphasized 16 times in this activity. Another approach is to ask students specifically to use the slope formula given two points (if you wish) as 2 points are highlighted on the graph.

When completing the 16 questions, students will check for their answers on the answer sheet. Students are asked to
match the number of the question with the letter of the answer. Then each student will map his/her findings to a grid (an example is provided for you). If a student chooses the correct answers, the sum of the numbers in the grid will be the same horizontally, vertically, and diagonally. The four corner boxes and the four center boxes will total the same amount, as well.

If the student gets the same number in all directions as well as the boxes, then the student answered the questions correctly. Otherwise, the student would need to check his/her work.

This is a great way to review before a quiz or a test. This activity could even be assigned as a homework, recap of the lesson, review, individual practice, cooperative learning, or even while you're out. It is self monitoring. It is a good practice over this particular concept.

Research has shown that using self-assessment with students can positively effect self-efficacy and intrinsic motivation levels in students (Rolheiser and Ross).

This activity includes a STEP-BY-STEP ANSWER KEY.
