Students interpret linear and nonlinear graphs then match them to short stories in this engaging activity for 8th grade math or algebra.

This activity works great as a group or partner activity. Students can discuss with each other why they they think a graph matches a story. Each student can be given his or her own answer sheet to pass in for credit.

Each story describes a walk between home and school at a mixture of constant and non-constant rates. Students will need to think about the shapes of graphs when speed is increasing, decreasing or staying the same as well as the slopes of the graphs when moving towards or away from the origin.

This download includes both a printable and digital version of the activity. The digital version is in GOOGLE Slides. There are 4 graphs and 5 stories per slide in the digital version. Once all stories are matched to their graphs, there will be one story left over.

There are 18 total graphs and stories as well as one extra credit problem asking students to write their own story about a graph. Also included is a poster with keywords for linear and nonlinear graphs (seen in the 3rd thumbnail), a student response sheet and answer key.

Includes both print + interactive digital versions
