I created this average rate of change activity for my pre-calculus classes to work through recently. Question stacks are one of my favorite self-checking activities for the math classroom. Years ago when I taught mainly Algebra 1, I created what felt like a million different question stacks. When I switched to teaching higher level math …

# Linear Functions Activities

I created this hole punch activity to give my Algebra 1 students practice finding rate of change from a graph. When I teach Algebra 1, I intentionally avoid using the word “slope” for as long as possible. I printed off a bunch of practice questions for students to complete inside our dry erase pockets. If …

When I taught Algebra 1, I ran across a fun slope treasure hunt activity for practicing the concept of slope (or gradient, for my international readers). My Algebra 1 students really enjoyed this slope treasure hunt. The activity is appropriate for middle school math as well. I originally came across this Slope Treasure Hunt (also …

I love this graphing linear equations activity that uses transparencies. Students are given a coordinate plane template and a small strip of transparency paper with a straight line printed or drawn on it. Students have to use the transparent line to graph each of the following linear functions. For each function, they must then record …

We completed this calculating slope and intercepts foldable in our Algebra 1 interactive notebooks. We completed this foldable after our Finding Slope and Finding Intercepts Foldables. It’s a simple booklet foldable of practice problems. Free Download of Calculating Slope and Intercepts Foldable

This Finding Intercepts Foldable reviews finding x- and y-intercepts from a graph, from an equation, and from a table. I created it for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. I also created a similar foldable for finding slope. Like with the Finding Slope foldable, I had students cut off the top …

This Finding Slope Foldable reviews finding slope from a graph, from an equation, and from a table. I created it for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. I also created a similar foldable for finding intercepts. I modified a standard four door foldable to create this finding slope foldable. I had …

I created this four types of slope graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. Though the concept of slope is a middle school standard in Oklahoma, I find that I have to go ALL the way back to the basics with my Algebra 1 students. We began by refreshing …

I was super excited to find this collection of real-world situations for linear functions.

My husband made this transformations of linear functions foldable for me last year when I was sick. I introduced my students to the following vocabulary words: reflected, dilated, and translated. For practice, we just wrote some problems on the next blank page in our notebooks. Free Download of Transformations of Linear Functions Foldable
