Linear Functions (Part 2)

See my first post on linear functions here.  This is what the rest of the unit looked like:

Above was supposed to be a matching game, but the students didn't enjoy it very well.  I was frustrated, but maybe we should have played bingo like @mpershan (see his post it's trig bingo).  Anyway here is my template.  (To view file open in google docs and download original in word.)  I had each student graph 6 equations before starting, and then pair up with someone who had six different equations and play memory.

Then we wrote linear equations.  Kids practiced a few and then came up with their own.  It is hard to figure out how to think about something that is happening over and over again, so it was a struggle.  Also I feel this is something that is very difficult to differentiate for and provide interventions for....

That was the end of our unit on linear functions.  We moved onto exponential functions!

  1. Thank you for the template. I think it will be very useful to use the way you used it and for many other graphing examples.
