Defining Slope. Identifying positive, negative, zero and undefined slope. Calculating slope from a graph and from a table. Includes a simple song that I made up to help my students remember to put the RISE on top and the RUN on the bottom. Many students have told me they sing it to themselves during quizzes and tests, and quite a few former students have told me they still remember it and use it in high school. My students loved it when I had them sing it in a round, boys vs girls, or left vs right side of the class, especially when we would get faster and faster each time. This really helped them remember this concept which is foundational to everything else they learn about linear equations and systems of equations.
ANSWER KEYS PROVIDED
These two foldables are designed as to be easy additions to interactive student notebooks (ISNs). With simple folding and no cutting needed, this makes teacher prep time a breeze and saves valuable class time. One sheet is a guided notes page and the other is for independent practice. Using colored paper for the guided notes foldable is optional.
