Lesson Description: Stained Glass Window is a project that requires students to graph Linear Equations in order to create a colorful (yet mathematical) display window. Each student selects and graphs at least twelve linear equations from the equation bank to create their own unique window. This visual/kinesthetic project will help students to clearly identify the equations of horizontal and vertical lines and to easily distinguish between positive and negative slope. Key graphing vocabulary can also be developed.
Math Content: Linear Equations, Graphing Linear Equations, Finding Solutions for Linear Equations, Slope, Y-Intercept, Coordinate Plane, Ordered Pairs, and Coordinates
Time Required: 1-2 Class Periods

Teacher Testimonial: Stained Glass Window is a project that provides needed practice for students in the area of Graphing Linear Equations. Students are able to be creative in selecting the equations that they want to graph and then choose colors in order to create their own unique Stained Glass Window. Then, they have the opportunity to put their window together with others in the class to create large Stained Glass Windows in the classroom.
Enjoy your lesson!!
