Hello Math Teachers! Why is it so hard for some students to use the slope formula? This worksheet focuses on finding slope of lines algebraically by correctly using the slope formula. The trick is to break it down into smaller more manageable steps. First, 6 questions practicing on just substituting points into the formula. Second, solve 12 expressions that are fractions with subtracting integers in the numerator and denominator. Third, 4 questions with fill in boxes with missing part to solve questions using the slope formula. Fourth, 12 questions putting it all together using the slope formula to find slope when given two points. This two sided worksheet has 31 short answer questions and key.
I use this with my 8th grade Pre-Algebra math classes and as a review with my Algebra 1 classes.
Aligned with common core standards and item specifications for Florida’s 8th Math FSA. TEKS, CST, PARCC, Common Core 8.EE.B.6 Go Math G8, Glencoe, McGraw Hill, and Big Ideas Grade 8.
