These activity sheets will help students make connections between linear graphs, equations, tables of values, and the stories they represent. This resource is one of my favorites and best sellers!
Included are 6 different sheets, each with a different scenario and a different representation given. For example, students may be given an equation, and they must fill in a graph to match, missing parts of the story, a table, and identify the initial value and rate of change. The sheets range in difficulty so you can differentiate based on ability.
You will also receive a blank template, so the students (or teacher) can create their own.
All pages are in PDF format. Answer keys are included.
I put these pages in white board sleeves and let the students try different ones with dry erase markers. They then switch and try a new one. The pages could also be used for a week of bell ringers or exit tickets, or just general practice.
Common Core Standards:
Interpret the equation y = mx + b as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear.
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.
For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship.
Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.*
Write a function that describes a relationship between two quantities
