In these activities, students practice graphing linear relationships by making a table. First students are given equations in standard form and must rearrange the equations to be in slope intercept form (solve for y). Then students practice selecting appropriate x-values, substituting these values into the linear equation, and solving for y to find coordinates on the line. Coordinate planes are provided on the notes so that students can easily graph these points and connect them with a line. On the practice worksheets, students are also given linear equations with seven coordinates each and are asked to determine which coordinates satisfy the equation. These notes and practice worksheets are differentiated based on some common needs found in the middle school math classroom. Modifications are considered for both struggling learners and high flyers.
Differentiated Notes Include:
Traditional Notes – These are basic skeletal notes. Students fill in the examples with you and do the “try” problems independently.
Modified Notes – These cut down on the amount of writing that students are required to do. All examples are filled in, but practice problems are left blank for student completion. (Excellent for IEP and 504 accommodations involving difficulties with hearing, handwriting, etc.)
Teacher Notes – These are completely filled in for teacher reference. These notes are also great for students who have been absent.
Differentiated Practice (Homework) Includes:
Advanced Practice – Perfect challenge for your high flyers! Many problems overlap with Basic Practice, but this worksheet skips some of the basic problems and replaces them with more advanced practice.
Basic Practice – The majority of your students will complete this on-level assignment.
Modified Practice – Great option for students requiring a modified amount of homework per an IEP or 504. This is a cut down version of the Basic Practice assignment (one page only).
NOTE: The different forms are denoted by a discrete symbol in the bottom left corner of each page.
