Thirty cards include practice finding the slope of linear functions from graphs, including graphs of horizontal and vertical lines.
Half of the students stand shoulder-to-shoulder facing one direction. The other half of the students stand should-to-shoulder with each other face-to-face with the first group of students so partners are facing each other in two long rows. Some teachers prefer to have an inner circle of students facing an outer circle of students. Either way will work as long as each student has a partner.
Each student has one Quiz Quiz Trade card to show to the facing partner. The answer is on the back of the card so the student can tell the partner if the answer is correct or can coach the partner if they make a mistake. Both partners take turns quizzing the other, then the two students trade cards.
Once each set of partners appears to be finished quizzing and trading cards, both lines of students take one step to the right to meet a new partner. Students on the right end of each line should wrap around to join the other row.
Students go through the process with their new partner to quiz each other, then trade cards. This process repeats until students seem to have mastered the questions and finish quickly. If there are an odd number of students, the teacher can step in as a partner.
This is a great large-group activity to use when first learning the new skill. The cards can also be used by an individual student or a small group as a review.
The answer key is built into the activity so students check each other for accuracy.
CCSS: Use functions to model relationships between quantities.
8.F.B.4 Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (x, y) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values.
CCSS: Interpret linear models.
HSS.ID.C.7 Interpret the slope (rate of change) and the intercept (constant term) of a linear model in the context of the data.
CCSS: Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context.
HSF.IF.B.6 Calculate and interpret the average rate of change of a function (presented symbolically or as a table) over a specified interval. Estimate the rate of change from a graph.
