I had students review for their linear equations test by doing this slope-intercept form scavenger hunt. I LOVE scavenger hunts because it provides the structure for organized chaos. The students can also move at their own pace so some took the whole class period and others were done in about 15 minutes.
The document contains an answer recording sheet for the students the answer key, and 10 slides (questions) on the following topics:
-Finding the equation of a line given two points
-Finding the equation of a line given the slope and y-intercept
-Finding the equation of a line given a real-world situation
-Putting equations into slope-intercept form
-Finding the slope of a line between two points
1. Print out each slide and paste in different spots around the classroom.
2. Divide students up into 10 groups.
3. Tell each group to start at a different spot.
4. Have students solve the problem at their station.
5. Have students find their answer at the top, blue part of the paper, written in brackets. There will also be a symbol. They will draw that symbol on their answer sheet.
6. Students will solve the question underneath the blue answer they found.
7. Students will find the next answer and record the symbol.
8. Students continue until they have completed their answer sheet and have solved all 10 problems.
9. Teachers will be able to immediately check work with the included answer key. The starting position of all the symbols will be different, but the order will be the same on each student’s paper. If it is not, they have done something wrong.
