A challenging twist on the traditional "matching" assessment, this "quiz" assesses students' understanding of writing linear functions in slope-intercept form, standard form, and point-slope form, while adding the cooperative, kinesthetic fun of scissors, glue sticks, and sorting!
First, students work together to match and paste equivalent linear forms in the table. After the provided functions have been cut and pasted, there's more to be done! To add higher-level thinking, students write an equivalent linear function in the appropriate form in any cell that is blank.
Beware! Extra "bogus" functions (that are NOT linear!) are also included in the mix, and students must critically analyze the mathematics to identify and exclude these "bogus" equations. Students LOVE throwing these in the trash... er... recycling bin! ;-)
I've used Cut-and-Paste quizzes with students many times, and this unique hands-on approach encourages cooperation and communication.
A sample key is provided for your convenience.
