This set of 24 cards (6 sets of 4 different questions) can be used to engage students in finding slope, and using slope to answer other ideas.
Set 1: Find the slope of a line through 2 given points
Set 2: Given the slope and one point find two other points on the line
Set 3: Given the slope and one point on a line, find the y-intercept of the line.
Set 4: Given two points on a line, what is the slope of the line?
What is special about all the points on the line?
Set 5: Given two points on a line, if the y-coordinate of one of the points is changed so the slope of the line changes to the opposite of the original line, what would the new y-coordinate be equal to?
Set 6: Given two points on a line, what is the x- or y-intercept of the line? Then name one point on the line that is in another quadrant.
The teacher can differentiate the lesson by setting up different stations or assigning students to complete only certain cards.
By providing a graph for each problem, students will be solving the problem graphically and analytically.
After students have solved a question on their recording sheet, they can use a QR reader to scan the QR code. This will show the students a complete solution to the question. These solutions show students good techniques for solving the problem. They might be able to apply these techniques to solving similar questions.
