Slope Poster (slope, converting to slope-intercept form, point-slope form and graphing equations)
The students are given two ordered pairs, and must write the slope formula in addition to finding and simplifying the slope. After that they need to put the information into point-slope form, and then convert that to slope intercept by distributing and combining like terms. The final step is to graph the line using any of the equations they want to. There is a rubric attached to score it out of 30 points. I give this as a quiz grade!
This is a poster I use in my Algebra 1 class after we cover the chapter over slope. I have my students get in groups of 3 and pass out the starting page to the group based on the students in the group.
You can differentiate the problems to the students based on their group readiness and abilities. Sheets with a 1 in the corner are basic, sheets with a 2 are average, and sheets with a 3 are the more challenging ones for the advanced learners. (8 different versions)
The students really like doing this for a few reasons; they get to work with partners, they get to make a poster, it's a good summative assessment that they feel confident about, and most importantly, they get to use markers! :-)
