Product Description
Bring inquiry-based learning to your Algebra classroom with this scaffolded card sort! Students will have the opportunity to explore equations in slope intercept form through patterns and will end with a firm conceptual understanding of the topic. This activity is designed to replace traditional notes, PowerPoint slides, or lecture-based teaching in your lesson. Students can complete the card sort individually or in cooperative learning groups. Meanwhile, you’ll be free to circulate and act as a resource to push your students’ thinking to new heights! Answer key provided!

Common Core Standards Focus:
This activity supports CCSS Math standard [8.EE.B.6] Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b. Have fun!

Necessary Prerequisite Skills:
identifying points on a coordinate plane, identifying the slope of a line (if you want to quantify slope)
