This resource has PowerPoint slides with an accompanying worksheet for students.
The slides have a description of a real world scenario. The students will write a slope intercept equation to represent the scenario, define the independent and dependent variables, graph the equation, and fill in missing values in a table. There are nine total problems.
Each slide has an image or video link that will help students introduce the real world scenario.
For example, there is a video of a scuba diver exploring the sea; students will discuss what we know about scuba diving (underwater, negative depth, etc.) and what the word problem might be asking.
