Using a table to create several data points for a linear equation, then using those points to create a graph. Tables on the notes page include a middle column to show how to substitute the x-values into the equation to calculate the y-value. Notes and practice worksheet also provide sections to determine whether coordinate pairs are "solutions" for a given equation. Notes also introduces the idea of slope by asking students to compare the coefficient of the x-variable to the direction and steepness of the lines on the graphs.
These two foldables are designed as to be easy additions to interactive student notebooks (ISNs). With simple folding and no cutting needed, this makes teacher prep time a breeze and saves valuable class time. One sheet is a guided notes page and the other is for independent practice.
