Perfect for Algebra I! Keep your students’ neurons charged with this engaging collaborative activity. After writing, graphing, and converting point-slope equations, your students will be more familiar and flexible with this form of linear function. Post-activity assessment included!
In this roundtable activity, groups of 3-4 students are each given the description of a different line, and four tasks to complete. After each task, the students rotate papers clockwise before beginning the next task, thus having to quickly adjust to a different problem! I love how this activity encourages students to discuss the skills involved, but each student must apply that discussion to his/her own unique problem.
In Round 1, students are given a point and a slope. As they rotate problems, they write point-slope equations, graph the line, and convert to slope-intercept form.
In Round 2, students are given two points on a line. They find the slope, write TWO equations in point-slope form, graph, and convert to slope-intercept form.
And when the activity is completed, there's a quick assessment that would make a great exit ticket, homework, or warm-up for the next day.
Solutions included for all problems.
