This finding slope activity is based on the “mix-freeze-pair” cooperative learning strategy. There are two levels of play, one where students find the slope based on a graph and the other where they find the slope between two ordered pairs using the slope formula. The graphing version uses two halves of a house or two halves of a mountain so that when paired the house or mountain is complete. The students must then find the slope of the right roof or right side of the mountain and the left roof or left side of the mountain. A worksheet is provided for the students to record their answers. Alternately, “What’s my slope?” can also be used as a math center activity.
For the ordered pairs, each student will have an ordered pair card and must find the slope between the two points when paired using the slope formula. Students can show their work and record their answers on their own paper.
