Parallel and Perpendicular Slopes thru a Point - Bullseye - PP was created by Pupsaroni Puzzles for use in an Algebra 1 or Algebra 2 classroom during the Linear Functions unit. It was created to help students see that they need the slope of a given line to manipulate to find a parallel or perpendicular line through a given point. There is a mix of parallel slopes and perpendicular slopes for students to work with on this activity. There are 8 problems in the bullseye. Students start with the given slope. Then they find the parallel or perpendicular slope as indicated. In the next layer, students are given a point. They use the slope they made with the point they were given to create an equation in point-slope form in the next outer layer. Finally, in the last layer, students are asked to re-arrange their point-slope form equation into both slope-intercept form and standard form.
This activity works great as an entrance or exit ticket, homework practice, individual classwork, group practice or cooperative learning activity, or as a center or station. It's quick, easy, and gives students the opportunity to work on several different skills in a short, easy assignment.
