Linear Functions: "Special Agent Detective…you have been assigned to the nation’s most highly classified files. EIGHT crimes have been committed. It has yet to be determined who, what and where these crimes occurred. Your mission is to uncover these crimes by grouping the characteristics of the linear function (slope-intercept form, slope, and x- and y-intercepts) with the clue (coded in Standard Form) on each of the eight files. You have 24 hours to complete this mission. Good Luck."
9 Crime Folders
1 Special Agent Report
Students have fun solving the crimes as they practice identifying characteristics of linear equations. Students are given 8 linear equations written in standard form. They will write the linear equations in slope-intercept form, then identify the slope and x- and y-intercepts. Final answers result in fun statements like "Crime #1: Taylor Swift Ran the Traffic Light In NY Times with Justin Bieber."
This linear functions resource works well for collaborative groups of 2-3 students or partners! Print on cardstock and laminate the clues and envelopes to save the activity for next year too!
