Help students make connections between tables, graphs, and equations!
This worksheet provides 4 problems (1 per page). For each problem, students graph the given equations using 3 methods: a table of values, x and y intercepts, and slope intercept form.
I often use this to teach the various methods. I'll lecture a little on the method, then do the first problem as an example, then let students try that method for each of the following 3 problems. Then I'll lecture on the second method, do an example, let students try. Finally, I'll lecture on slope intercept form, (most effective if students have been introduced to slope before), do an example, and let students work.
This would also be an EXCELLENT review for graphing linear equations. Students are able to clearly make connections between the various methods and see that the graph does not change.
The worksheet includes one vertical line and one problem that is not in y=mx+b form, allowing for further discussion and application.
