This activity is an organized way to have students translate between various representations of a linear function (COMMON CORE F8.2; F8.3 and ALGEBRA 1 Standards). The idea plays on the outline web used to plan a five paragraph essay. I have used this as individual assignments, but the most effective strategy is to work in small groups or centers. The students have a great time helping each other if made into a game with prizes! I have included a blank web for you to be creative! Sometimes, I have the kids create their own webs for homework. I have included 5 fill in the blanks webs (one piece is given -student must determine the rest), 1 totally blank web, and a key created with the Casio Graphing calculator. Sometimes I allow the students to use technology, sometimes not. Your choice, ENJOY!
Topics covered: linear graphing, slope-intercept form, standard form, slope, y-intercepts, tables, and verbal descriptions
