Students work in partners to find the slope between 2 points in this collaborative "Around the Clock" partner scavenger hunt activity. Each partner gets a clock with 12 unique coordinate pairs. Each partner's coordinate pairs are different but the slopes between them are the same, encouraging collaboration and teamwork. If one student gets stuck, the other can help. If student answers differ, they work together to figure out the correct slope before moving on to the next problem.
Students paste their START slip at 12 o'clock, find the slope between the 2 coordinate pairs and find the slope on the top of another slip. They then paste this next slip at 1 o'clock and find the slope between the 2 coordinate pairs on that slip. Each answer students find will lead to the next problem to solve.
Students find the slopes between all 12 pairs of coordinates, pasting their slips along the way, until they get back to 12 o'clock. If all slopes have been found correctly, the answer from the problem at 11 o'clock will be at the top of their START slip.
The activity is self-checking, providing students with instant feedback. The final product is a colorful example of their ability to find slope between two points. Includes optional student answer sheets and answer key.
