This is a fun, challenging scavenger hunt to help students explore lines in slope-intercept form. Students move around the room answering questions about lines, slope, and intercepts. Their solutions will lead them to the next question until they have answered all ten. This activity is very easy to prepare, and gets students thinking critically while having fun.
**This product is EDITABLE, so you can change questions to your liking.)
Directions for use: This activity requires students to get up and move around the room to find answers to questions involving graphing lines. Most of these are challenging and multi-step problems that require some critical thinking skills.
Prerequisites: Student must know how to:
· Write an equation in slope-intercept Form
· Graph a line in slope intercept form
· Identify slope and y-intercepts from an equation
· Re-write an equation in slope intercept form
· Graph an equation in slope intercept form
· Identify x and y intercepts from a graph
· Graph horizontal and vertical lines
· Print copies of the problems on pages 5-9
· Cut each page along the dashed line
· Tape problems around the classroom in a random order
What the Students Do:
Each problem has an answer to a different question in red underneath it.To start the activity, students choose any problem around the room to solve first.They answer the question and then look for their solution (answers are in RED) around the room (they should ignore the red answer on the problem they are currently working on).Once they find their answer, they work the problem on that card, and so on. If done correctly, they should complete all ten questions and the answer to the tenth problem should lead them to the question they started with. The answer key is provided and should be in the same order (backwards) that students are working the problems (although each student will have a different starting/ending point).
