This product provides practice describing the steps to graphing a linear equation in slope-intercept form.
The product has 15 equations for which the students need to state the y-intercept, the slope (in fraction form), and the direction of finding the next point using the slope. The students are directed to describe two ways to get to the next point using the slope. One way is moving up, and the other way is moving down. The students also sketch the direction of the slope, which helps them with understanding and describing using the slope correctly.
This process will help the students better understand the meaning of slope and will help them know that one can go up or down to get to the next point.
This product may be used at any point during the lesson of learning to graph an equation in slope-intercept form.
