Linear equations. Here are 3 flippables for the 3 linear equations in Algebra: the Slope Formula, the Slope-Intercept Equation and the Point-slope Formula. These flippables are easily assembled with a pair of scissors and a stapler. You can see a

Types:

Slope. This activity helps students identify slope when it is presented 5 different ways: tables, graphs, sets of coordinates, equations and right triangles. Students work in pairs to cut, sort then paste the different representations of slope into

Types:

Slope comes in many forms. In this activity, students cut out 24 puzzle pieces with different representations of slope (graphs, tables, equations, coordinate pairs, right triangles) and fit same-slope pieces together. Each completed puzzle has 4

Types:

Here is a big bundle of 12 slope resources that work great for scaffolding instruction. There are 10 slope activities, a set of slope notes with student handouts and a quiz. You can learn more about each activity by checking out the preview or

Types:

Graphing linear equations ornaments. In this collaborative activity for the holidays, students graph lines and write their equations. Question types include:
1: Graphing from slope-intercept form
2: Graphing from point-slope form
3: Graphing &

Types:

Slope-intercept. In this collaborative activity for Valentines Day, students work with slope-intercept graphs and equations on heart-shaped pennants. Once a pennant is complete, it can be hung along a string in your classroom to show the world that,

Types:

Linear Equations. In this activity, students cut out 24 puzzle pieces with different representations of the same equation: in slope-intercept form, point-slope form, and standard form. The 4th piece of each puzzle shows a graph or table of the

Types:

Algebra 1 word wall for linear equations. With references for slope, y-intercept, x-intercept, origin, grid, graph, table and x and y axis, this word wall is a great addition to your Algebra classroom.
The word wall is in black and white so that

Types:

Slope comes in many forms. Students work independently or together to find slopes given: graphs, right triangles, tables of data, equations, and coordinate pairs (8.F.A.2). On each of the 10 task cards is an additional question, which asks students

Types:

Slope comes in many forms. Students calculate and compare slope (rate of change) shown in tables, graphs, equations, ordered pairs, word problems and right triangles to find the greatest slope. Some slopes are fractions, so students will need to

Types:

CCSS:

Slope. In this collaborative slope activity, students find the slope shown in tables, graphs, equations and coordinate pairs on each of 20 pennants. Each pennant has a QR code for quick answer checking (a traditional answer key is also included as

Subjects:

Types:

Used as a whole-class game, this colorful Slope Jeopardy is completely interactive with sounds, animations and hyperlinks to and from from the main board.
And the categories are! Tables, Graphs, Ordered Pairs, Equations, and Triangles. The

Types:

Systems of Equations. In this collaborative activity, students graph and write the equations of systems of equations on each of 20 pennants. There are 2 sets of pennants in this download: 20 with QR codes for easy checking and 20 without. Once a

Types:

Algebra pennants are a fun way to practice Algebra, build community and add to your classroom decor. Included in this bundle are 4 pennant activities covering Slope, Domain and Range, Solving Equations (variables on both sides) and factoring

Types:

Math Pennants. This growing set currently contains 73 Math pennants and will be updated with additional sets when they are created. It will include all of the Math pennants that I ever make. You can request pennants you'd like to see in the bundle.

Subjects:

Types:

Slope scavenger hunt. This activity is great for review before a quiz or just as a fun activity during your slope unit. Students move from poster to poster finding slopes of tables, graphs, equations, coordinate pairs and right triangles. When they

Types:

Parallel and Perpendicular Task Cards. Students work through 30 questions on 10 task cards in this task cards activity covering parallel and perpendicular lines on the coordinate plane. Questions range from finding the equations of graphs to

Types:

Systems of Equations. In this collaborative activity, students solve systems of equations with elimination or substitution. Elimination problems involve multiplying one, both or neither of the two equations. Once a pennant is complete, it can be

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a high school Special Ed Math teacher certified to teach Math, Biology and Moderate Disabilities. Over the years I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-algebra, Geometry, Consumer Math, Biology and General Science. In my current position I teach Special Education Algebra 2 and Consumer Math and love it! Teaching Math-phobic students has turned out to be my strength. Once a kid "gets" Math, the whole words opens up.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My number one goal is to always teach Math in a way that includes everyone and thatmakes my students want to go on to take more years of Math. To me, giving my students confidence and desire to continue their Math education is the most important thing I can do.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm a published author of a Chicken Soup for the Soul story called "The Eye Patch". This is a completely random fact but did once land me a teaching job. I believe it's in the Teens Talk Middle School book:)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I was always a fan of Science but not so much of cutting things up so I majored in Environmental Science in college. I added a Math certification to my Biology certification and went on to study Mathematics for Teaching in graduate school. A few years later I pursued my Special Education license.
