Slope Intercept Art Part Two is an fun and creative exercise where students can practice and reinforce their understanding of graphing lines in the slope intercept format.
This lesson includes two options for differentiated instruction.
Students can use included equations and graph them. Once they are graphed correctly, the student can color the graph.
Students can complete a table, using two points to solve for the slope, y-intercept, and equation. Once the equations are completed, they can be graphed. Once they are graphed correctly, they can be colored.
There are three different tables and three different corresponding graphs that students can chose from.
Once the student has graphed all the lines they can color the resulting shapes however they choose. Students get the opportunity to meld math with their individual creativity.
Completed tables and graphs are available to quickly check if a student’s work is correct.
The teacher can print the completed graphs on transparency paper.
Once the student has graphed all the equations, the transparency can be laid over the student’s work to quickly make sure the lines are correct before they are colored.
