This is an activity you can use to check for student understanding of Linear functions. Each page has its matching graph, table, equation of the line, and equation in standard form. You cut each one of them out and pass out to students randomly. Students are to take a couple of minutes and try to come up with their missing puzzel (e.g. table, graph, equation in standard form, or slope intercept form.)Then students will get up and try to find their missing puzzels until they find all 4 people with their corresponding parts. When students have found each other they sit down in groups of 4 and students help/reteach one another as to how to find their partners. Students will then start to develope patters and see that all 4 parts are Interrelated.
Teacher collects them, and passes them out again and students will then start developing patterns or see things they didn't see before. (i.e. what is the slope, y intercept, etc...) Do it a few times till you see students getting the hang of it. The activity can take about 15 to 20 min. Teacher walks around to see what the students are lacking then teacher can take time to re-teach.
