Linear Equation Match Up
I made this product to use with my Algebra 1 students when working with Linear Equations. It is imperative that the students can see equivalent algebraic data in different forms- in particular through tables, equations and graphs.
There are 30 different cards (10 each of tables, graphs and equations) that the students have to match up to see the equivalent representations of the data.
Each card is labeled with either a number, letter or Roman numeral, to make checking the students matches easier. (An answer key is included.)
When I made these for my class I printed one set of each on different colored cardstock and laminated them. I put the students in groups of 2-3 and gave them each a set of cards. They then decided which cards they would match up first. Most of the students found the rate of change and y-intercept from the table and matched them with the equations and then went straight to the graphs after that.
(As a reflection piece, since I already used this in my classroom: the next time I do this activity, I will provide the students with a dry erase marker for working out their equations on the laminated tables. My advanced students were able to do the calculations in their heads, but my lower students had to do their work using pen and paper.)
