This activity is target oriented. I use this maze when I first introduce the Slope-Intercept Form. Students will practice "Writing Linear Equations given the Slope and the y-intercept".

Students will work with different models where they have to extract the Slope and the Y-intercept from the given information and use it in writing the equation of the line.

The Slope in this maze is:

☑ Given directly as m = ...

☑ Must be calculated from a graph

☑ Must be calculated from 2 points (one of which is the y-intercept)

☑ Must be calculated from a table of values

In this activity the line maybe:

☑ Falling Line (Negative Slope) ...

☑ Rising Line (Positive Slope) ...

☑ Horizontal Line (Zero Slope) ...

The Y-Intercept in this maze is:

☑ Given directly as b = ...

☑ Given directly as y-intercept = ...

☑ Given directly as an ordered pair (0, b)

☑ Must be identified from a graph

☑ Must be identified from a table of values

☑ Given directly as one of the 2 points

It is on purpose that students don't have to calculate the y-intercept in this maze. I wanted my students to feel comfortable recognizing the y-intercept regardless of the given information. So, when 2 points are given, one of the points is the y-intercept on purpose. In the table of values, one of the points is the y-intercept on purpose as well. As I've indicated earlier, this is the first maze I use when I introduce the Slope-Intercept Form.

Students should feel comfortable with:

☑ Finding the Slope from Graph

☑ Finding the Slope given 2 Points

☑ Finding the Slope given a table of values

☑ Identifying the y-intercept

☑ Working with the Slope-Intercept Form: y=mx +b

There are 15 questions provided. From start to end, the student will be able to answer 14 questions out of the 15 provided to get to the end of the maze.

This maze could be used as: a way to check for understanding, a review, recap of the lesson, pair-share, cooperative learning, exit ticket, entrance ticket, homework, individual practice, when you have time left at the end of a period, beginning of the period (as a warm up or bell work), before a quiz on the topic, and more.

Recognize situations in which one quantity changes at a constant rate per unit interval relative to another.
Calculate and interpret the average rate of change of a function (presented symbolically or as a table) over a specified interval. Estimate the rate of change from a graph.
