Product Description
A fun way to practice finding slope from multiple representations.

Students cut each Ghost into 4 puzzle parts and match slopes given equations, tables, ordered pairs, and graphs to create 6 different Slope Ghosts

Ghosts begin in random order so students would be able to cut them out.

Students will practice finding slope given multiple representations.

Students will find matching slope values, consisting of an equation, a table, a set of ordered pairs, and a graph. All parts will fit together to create a complete slope ghost.

Negative and positive slopes are represented.
All slopes are fractions, no whole numbers for this activity.

(one of our classroom mindset changes was Change your Mind from "Scary Fractions" to "Fractions don't scare me" ... which led to the parody "I ain't afraid of no fractions" hence the slope ghost activity.

Several times students will need to find the simplest form of a fraction.

Puzzles come in 2 sizes:
2 per landscape letter size page (99% of students could see the graph)
or letter size - 1 slope ghost each page (for the 1% from above)
Puzzles are exactly the SAME in each size – only 6 puzzles total.

A page in table form is provided for students to show work\answers is provided.
Two answer keys - one for the page and one in ghost form
