DIGITAL AND PRINT: Two placemat activities include practice writing linear equations from context / word problems and to review writing and rewriting linear equations.
With a partner, students solve all four equations on the placemat. After both students agree on the answers or solutions for all problems on the page, they then add the answers together to find the “Sum”. The teacher easily and quickly checks the “Sum” to evaluate the students’ understanding which allows the students to know if they made a mistake.
Do your students struggle? Are you looking for more extensive practice on a single skill? If so, check out my Algebra 1: "Slow It Down" Series.
I isolated four types of linear word problems and created four new, separate Algebra 1 "Slow It Down" activities, each focused on only one type of problem. You can find these in the "Slow It Down" bundle listed below or individually in my store:

CCSS: Use functions to model relationships between quantities.
8.F.B.4 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.
CCSS: Understand the concept of a function and use function notation.
HSF.IF.A.2 Use function notation, evaluate functions for inputs in their domains, and interpret statements that use function notation in terms of a context.
CCSS: Build a function that models a relationship between two quantities.
HSF.BF.A.1 Write a function that describes a relationship between two quantities.
HSF.BF.A.1a Determine an explicit expression, a recursive process, or steps for calculation from a context.
CCSS: Construct and compare linear, quadratic, and exponential models and solve problems.
HSF.LE.A.2 Construct linear and exponential functions, including arithmetic and geometric sequences, given a graph, a description of a relationship, or two input-output pairs (include reading these from a table).
CCSS: Create equations that describe numbers or relationships.
HSA.CED.A.2 Create equations in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities; graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales.
HSA.CED.A.4 Rearrange formulas to highlight a quantity of interest, using the same reasoning as in solving equations.
CCSS: Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context.
HSF.IF.B.4 For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship.
TEKS: Linear functions, equations and inequalities
A1.2.C Linear functions, equations, and inequalities. The student applies the mathematical process standards when using properties of linear functions to write and represent in multiple ways, with and without technology, linear equations, inequalities, and systems of equations. The student is expected to: write linear equations in two variables given a table of values, a graph, and a verbal description.
A1.3.A Linear functions, equations, and inequalities. The student applies the mathematical process standards when using graphs of linear functions, key features, and related transformations to represent in multiple ways and solve, with and without technology, equations, inequalities, and systems of equations. The student is expected to: determine the slope of a line given a table of values, a graph, two points on the line, and an equation written in various forms, including y = mx + b, Ax + By = C, and y - y1 = m(x - x1)
A1.3.B Linear functions, equations, and inequalities. The student applies the mathematical process standards when using graphs of linear functions, key features, and related transformations to represent in multiple ways and solve, with and without technology, equations, inequalities, and systems of equations. The student is expected to: calculate the rate of change of a linear function represented tabularly, graphically, or algebraically in context of mathematical and real-world problems.
VA SOL: Equations and Functions
EI.A.4.e The student will solve practical problems involving equations and systems of equations.
EI.A.6.a The student will determine the slope of a line when given an equation of the line, the graph of the line, or two points on the line.
VA SOL: Functions
F.A.7.d The student will investigate and analyze linear and quadratic function families and their characteristics both algebraically and graphically, including intercepts.
Print several copies of the placemat on one color of paper and slide them into plastic page protectors. The students can use dry erase markers on the plastic and easily wipe off their work when finished. Sometimes I print two different placemats with similar topics, each on their own color of paper, and put them back-to-back into the plastic page protectors.
This activity works well at the beginning of a lesson when students are actively learning a new skill and can also be used as a review.
The instructions are clearly marked on the students’ page and the answer key is included.
Included in the package:
Two placemats activities, each with four problems and space to write the “Sum” of the solutions.
-Write Linear Equations From Context
-Linear Equations Mixed Review
