Linear Equations Line Match Activity
Included are 32 cards in which students write a linear equation given either standard form, the graph of the line, a point and slope, or two points. Every four cards will represent the same equation. Here are the directions:
1) Cut out and give each student one card. They need to take the information on the card and write the equation in slope-intercept form.
2) After they have written their equation, they get up and find the other 3 people in the class that have the same equation.
3) They sit down together and fill in the "Our Line" graphic organizer paper. On this graphic organizer, they must identify the following:
-The slope-intercept form of their line ("Our Line")
-The standard form of their line.
-The slope of their line.
-The y-intercept of their line.
-The graph of their line.
-Points that their line passes through.
-The equation of their line if it were translated down 3 units.
-An equation parallel to their line (Answers vary)
-An equation perpendicular to their line (Answers vary)
See the thumbnail images for the sample cards and graphic organizer paper. I typically have each student fill in the graphic organizer, and randomly collect one per group. This is an excellent collaborative activity that helps the students connect all the concepts taught during the writing linear equations unit.
