This "secret message" activity will amuse your students and introduce them to graphing simple linear equations. The focus is on translating between ordered pairs and equations.
Directions: In each row, determine which ordered pair would appear on a graph of the equation. Circle the letter next to the correct ordered pair in each row. The first one has been completed for you.
At the end, read the message from top to bottom. It reads, "Linear Equations." (The other letters spell "Use x first to get y").
And all you have to do is copy it! The prep is all done for you. It's easy to check. Just see if they found the secret message! It's up to you to determine how much work you require your students to show. Use it as group work, homework, enrichment, or extra practice.
