Product Description

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

Positive slopes

Negative slopes

Points reflected about the y-axis

Points of Discussion - Graphing Points

Origin

4 quadrants

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?
