Create a few Pi Day smiles with this solve for y practice. Pi Day themed answer message spices up regular practice and makes grading a snap!
The Pi Day Twist:
Students convert 15 linear equations to slope-intercept form (out of 26) before receiving the Pi Day Card
. Students use answers to decode the hidden message. Since the Pi Day Card is addressed “To My Wonderful Teacher,” students are essentially sending you, the teacher, the card when they turn in their work. “Oh what thoughtful students I have!
