In this activity, students will choose the best method for writing the equation of a line, based on the way in which the line is described.
Page 2 of this document is the handout for student use.
Page 3 is the teacher’s key.
Page 4 contains the descriptions for each line. I print these on card stock, cut, and place in baggies for my students.
I use this activity towards the end of my Linear Functions unit. Students have already learned to write the equations of lines earlier in the unit.
I use this activity on the same day that I use my activity "Graphing Linear Equations - What's the Best Method?" that is also available in my store.
