PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity is for students who are already able to graph a linear equation on the coordinate plane. It is a great way to practice or review Slope-Intercept Form.

After choosing a location on each of the four maps to bury a treasure, each student writes the equations for two lines that will intersect at their “X.” Then, each student cuts or tears their strip of equations off and swaps with a partner. Each student finds his/her partner’s treasure by graphing the two lines and writing an ordered pair that represents the intersection point.

This could be a great introduction to solving a system of equations by graphing.

Print one “hide the treasure” worksheet and one “Find the treasure” worksheet per student (works great double-sided).

Ideas are included for adding an extra challenge (such as having students write the equations in Standard Form or Point-Slope Form).

*** This item is also available as part of a larger DISCOUNTED bundle: Slope and Graphing Linear Equations Bundle
