Slope comes in many forms. Students calculate and compare slope (rate of change) shown in tables, graphs, equations, ordered pairs, word problems and right triangles to find the greatest slope. Some slopes are fractions, so students will need to remember how to compare two fractions to find which is greater. Each of the 10 task cards show 3 slopes in different forms and it's the student's task to find the greatest slope of the 3. Once the greatest slope is determined on each card, another piece of the mystery message is revealed. Students also have the option of solving 4 word problems found throughout the task cards for bonus points. A student answer sheet and an answer key are included.
