This worksheet is designed to give students practice graphing points and linear equations given a point and the slope of the line. It also practices finding the slope of a line and the x and y intercepts given two points on the line.
One of the difficulties I have found that students have with linear equations is that they don't see a line as infinite points. They graph two points, connect them, and then call it good. They don't understand that a linear equation is a continuation of points. This worksheet forces students to continue a linear equation across the graph and write down different points on the line. Having students write down and continue points across a graph really helps them to see what is going on with linear equations.
This worksheet is 4 pages long (blank graphs take up a lot of room). I have included an answer key with this worksheet. Please note that some answers may be different depending on what points the students choose to list.
This worksheet is the final slope/graphing practice I do with students before getting to slope-intercept form of linear equations (y = mx + b).
