This activity involves finding the slope of line segments from a drawing of a Christmas tree. For younger students, a list of ordered pairs is given for the students to graph, connect the points, and draw a picture of a Christmas tree.
Points of Discussion - Slope:
Slope of vertical lines
Slope of horizontal lines
Points reflected about the y-axis
Points of Discussion - Graphing Points
What do all points in Quadrant 4 have in common?
What do all points which lie on the x-axis have in common?
What is meant by an ordered pair?
