Product Description
I have used this everywhere from 9th grade to remedial college classes for introducing students to linear equations. It engages students in problem solving and class-wide discussion; students with D's stand up at the board to explain their graphs to classmates! The task introduces the concept of slope as rate-of-change and y-intercept as a starting point, and it effectively ties together the tabular, algebraic, and graphical representations. I generally have students start with a table, then I help them to develop variables and equations, followed by a graph. This activity sheet provides space for students to complete those representations, as well as a completed answer key. Throughout our unit on linear equations I continue to refer to honeycombs in order to keep students grounded in the conceptual understanding.
