This product was created to help my students think and learn what is required for an equation to be parallel or perpendicular to another equation. The product can be used as a learning or an assessment tool.
The product has three equation matching tables, so there are three versions on the sheet. Cut the three tables apart and give one to each group or student.
The directions tell the student to create four categories on a sheet of paper: original, parallel, perpendicular, and neither. The student then writes each of the equations in the appropriate category.
Alternatively, the students could be given colored pencils or markers and circle the related equations each set in a different color. Then, the student could write "O" next to the equation for "original", PARA for parallel, PERP for perpendicular, and "N" for neither.
I wanted a very quick way to assess or teach the students the concepts of parallel and perpendicular lines.
The product is supplied here as a Word document and in pdf form.
