Models of Linear Equations Match Up!
In this activity, students are required to match each linear equation with its graph and corresponding table of values. They will need to rely on their understanding of the relationship between various representations. Knowing how to write equations in slope-intercept form may be helpful, but is not necessary. I generally have the students work with a partner so they can increase their level of understanding through discussion and collaboration.

36 Linear Equation Cut-Outs (12 equations, 12 tables, 12 graphs)
Student Record Sheet
Directions for the teacher:
1. Give each student (or pair of students) copies of the sheets containing the the equations, graphs, and tables. Instruct them to cut out all of the pieces.
2. Give each student (or pair of students) a copy of the record sheet. I usually copy these on colored paper.
3. Instruct students to use what they’ve learned about representations of linear equations to match each equation with its corresponding graph and table of values. Axes are labeled so they’ll know which direction to turn the graphs.
4. Glue each set onto the student record sheet.
If students are writing the equations in slope-intercept form, I have them show their work right under the equation.
You may also choose to have them indicate each slope and y
This activity meets the following Common Core Standard:
Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions).
