Students will use slope throughout this lesson as they get drawn into a story problem of an agricultural compound that is threatened by a hazardous vine. As students progress through the parts of the math story, they will be using slope and applications of slope for every part (and have fun too!)
Not sure what a math story is? Watch this video
to find out how math stories got started, or this video preview
of the Killer Vine Slope Math Story!
The story itself is a 1-class period lesson. In addition to the slope story lesson with a video introduction, this resource also has two practice worksheets, a blank slope graphic organizer and a completed slope graphic organizer (which could also be used a poster).
