### Description

Mardi Gras activity for math class! In this holiday-themed activity, students practice writing linear equations. Students travel in pairs to eight stations as they practice writing linear equations in slope intercept form given a graph, table, two points, verbal scenario, point and parallel or perpendicular line, or slope and line sharing the same x-intercept. Now includes a version for Google Drive.

Procedure:

-You can either set up the 8 stations at groups of desks or tape the stations to the walls around the room. Either way keep the images that are alike together.

-Pair students up. Assign one partner to be “A” and one to be “B.” They should record their assignment in the top right hand corner of their workspace.

-Students travel to each station as a pair. They each complete one problem based on their letter assignment. Although they are each solving a different problem, they can check to see if they are correct because they should have matching answers.

-Students neatly copy the original problem and show their work in the stations workspace.

-Once they complete their problem and confirm their answer matches their partner’s answer, then they check the key to find the answer and write the corresponding letter in the small box in the right hand corner of the workspace. The list of answers in the key represents both correct answers and answers that correspond to common mathematical errors.

-Students continue to go to all 8 stations. You can either allow students to move freely around the room in any order or set a timer and have students all rotate at the same time. Each station should take about 2-3 minutes.

-In the end, they should unscramble the letters to find the mystery word. They share this mystery word with you to confirm that their work is complete. The mystery word is KING CAKE. I allow those students who finish first to help other students complete the activity.

Included in this product:

-8 stations (each with 2 problems with the same equation)

-2-page workspace

-2-page Teacher's Guide with CCSS, objectives, materials, and procedure

Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (𝘹, 𝘺) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values.
