Linear Review Booklet Activity
I am pretty proud of this recent upload and cannot wait to use it in my classroom next week. As we are getting closer to the end of the year assessment in Algebra, I found that my some of my students had forgotten some of the skills that we worked on earlier in the year, last semester.
Since linear equations, graphs and relationships are one of the most important topics covered in Algebra 1, I decided my students need an opportunity to refresh those skills before the end of the school year. I may even use this next year to help the students prepare for the assessment right after I teach these concepts.
Rather than giving them a worksheet, I made up a booklet of 10 questions over:
-the difference between a positive, negative, zero and undefined slope
-converting from standard form to slope intercept form
-graphing lines in slope intercept form
-using point-slope form
-writing equations from word problems
-solving and graphing a linear inequality
-an introduction into systems of equations and finding one solution to 2 equations
- And finally, a performance task type of question; the students have to find the rate of change from a table, find the y intercept, write an equation and tell what both stand for in terms of the problem.
I am still deciding whether to print out the booklets ahead of time (there are 3 sheets per page to make copying easy), or if it would be better to do this activity in stations around the room where each station has a different task and the students must form the booklet on their own as they finish the questions.
There is a cover page included and a scoring guide.
Thanks for checking this item out.
