This file contains two versions of a linear equations matching activity This can be an individual activity or completed with a partner. Students will be given standard and slope intercept forms of the same equation and have to match them to create a 4 x 4 square. This is a fun way to practice converting between the two forms.
Version 1 - Students will cut apart a scrambled puzzle sheet and glue them onto a blank 4 x 4 square template. The numbered squares make it easy to check for accuracy.
Version 2 - The 4 x 4 sheet needs to be printed on cardstock, laminated, and cut apart before distributing them to students. Students will just create the 4 x 4 square by mathcing the equivalent form of the same equation, the the teacher will verify placement without gluing them to a blank sheet. This version can be used year after year. (Particulary helpful if your campus limits your copies)
My personal opinion is that "option one" is easier to check as the number in the middle of each square makes it easier to "check" quickly. I used this as a review, and offered a bonus points on the upcoming test for the winning group, All of my students work very diligently on this activity. I am not even sure they notice they are reviewing! :) I hope your students enjoy this as much as mine have.
