### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SLOPE OF A LINE MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH STATIONS

............................................................................................................................

Are you looking for a fun activity to review slope of a line? Students love my stations activities because they get a chance to move around the room.

............................................................................................................................

CONTENTS

• 20 stations
• 2 cards per page

............................................................................................................................

TOPICS:

• Find the slope of a line given the graph

• Plot a point and use a slope to create a graph of the line.

• Plot 2 points and use the graph to determine the slope.

• Find the slope of a line given two points.

• Find the linear equation in y = mx + b form given the graph.

• Identify positive, negative, zero and no slope given a line, or just the slope.

• Create a real world example that explains positive slope.

• Look at slope as a rate.

TIPS

• Cut out and laminate stations so you can use them every class period and every year!

• I typically have students work in partners, but BOTH of them have to fill out the student information sheet, showing work. Students could also work individually. Working with more than one person gets too crowded, and some students skate by without participating at all.

• Each group will start at a station. They will be given a certain amount of time to complete each task. At the end of the time, they will switch to the next station. Example: If a student starts at station 1, they will go to station 2. If they are at station 20, they will go to station 1.

• There should never be more than two people at a station (unless you have more than 40 students…).

• Encourage (or require) students to write down EVERY problem so that if they run out of time on one station, they can finish earlier problems at another station.

• Give students a specific time to complete each task. (1-2 min) • Use a timer that goes off to help students know when to switch stations. This way, when the timer goes off, students will just get up and move without direction. Determine the amount of time based on the skill set of each group. I give some classes more time than others if needed. If I start with 2 minutes and all of the students are finishing quickly, I will decrease the time as we go. Usually 2 minutes is too much!

• I use this resource every year in the middle school math classroom. It can take up to a whole class period depending how much time is given to the students per station.

............................................................................................................................

• I observe the students during the activity and offer help if needed. After the activity, I collect their worksheet. This activity can be graded on accuracy or for effort or completion. If grading for effort/completion, make sure that the students show work and attempt all questions!
