What educators are saying

This was the BEST! The students loved coloring this in and creating a stained glass looking graph! Great way to practice skills and engage the students!
Slope is like a four-letter word for many students; this helped so much; they could see it and practice and the added bonus of coloring was beyond a dream. Thank you so much


Students will graph 18 equations written in slope-intercept form. All four types of slope are included(positive, negative, undefined, and zero). They will then darken the lines and color however they like creating a picture with a stained glass effect. This is a great activity that goes beyond the worksheet! You can save paper by printing the instructions on one side and the graph paper on the other!

This resource includes:

  • Student instructions page
  • Graph paper with the numbers and x- and y-axis labeled
  • Graph paper without the numbers or x- and y-axis labeled
  • An outline of the graphed lines
  • A colored example of the end result
  • A blank copy for your higher-level learners to create their own equations and designs

Options for using this resource:

This makes a great classroom or bulletin board display! Students get practice after learning about graphing linear equations and can be creative with their end results. This can be left as substitute plans as well.

My higher level learners love creating their own designs by writing their own linear equations(blank version is included)! This is great for differentiation! It's amazing the designs students can come up with!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation 𝘺 = 𝘮𝘹 for a line through the origin and the equation 𝘺 = 𝘮𝘹 + 𝘣 for a line intercepting the vertical axis at 𝘣.
Interpret the equation 𝘺 = 𝘮𝘹 + 𝘣 as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear. For example, the function 𝘈 = 𝑠² giving the area of a square as a function of its side length is not linear because its graph contains the points (1,1), (2,4) and (3,9), which are not on a straight line.
Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (𝘹, 𝘺) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values.
