Have students cut out each individual square and place graph or equation face down on a table. Students may work individually, as partners, or in small groups. One student flips over a card and guesses where its corresponding graph or equation is. They continue taking turns until someone finds a matching graph and equation. The student who finds the most matches wins.
Note: You could also use this as a card sort where students have all cards face up and find matches.
This Works Great For:
Students who are learning the basics of rational functions, such as horizontal and vertical asymptotes. All these graphs are in transformational form. There are no holes, slant asymptotes, and all graphs have exactly one vertical asymptote. This could be an individual activity to scaffold for a student who is struggling or as a review at the end of the semester.
