This is my twist on a popular Algebra game, Linear Battleship. In this 21st Century Math Project, students will work on graphing and reading graphs of linear equations. I've found that students are usually better at graphing the lines than writing the equations of graphed lines. These fun few assignments help reinforce those skills (and even practiced old ordered pairs).
The 2-3 day unit will culminate in a Linear Battleship competition which might just turn into a class tournament!
In this 9 page PDF you will receive a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, handout resources for students to use, and an answer key. If you download the preview you can see all of the included assignments.
-- In "Missile Testing", students will construct lines that travel through points with one point being constant.
-- In "Base to Base", students will construct lines that travel through two points (one is not constant).
-- In "Obstacle Course", students must write linear equations for each part of the travel and clearly mark starting and ending points of the function. You could even introduce bracket notation to have them display this.
