  • Standards
Students will practice comparing rate of change of linear functions represented as tables, graphs, and equations. Played just like the traditional card game, Math War is a game played in pairs or small groups with an objective of obtaining the greatest number of cards. Students turn over one card at a time and compare the rate of change of all cards. Whichever student has the card with the greatest rate of change keeps all the cards. If the rate of change is the same, students flip three cards upside down and one right side up and compare. The game is over when a student has all of the cards or the time is up. 36 cards included.

Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions). For example, given a linear function represented by a table of values and a linear function represented by an algebraic expression, determine which function has the greater rate of change.
