Finding Rate of Change from a Graph Hole Punch Activity

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. During …

Slope Treasure Hunt Activity

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 …

Rate of Change Interpreting Graphs Practice

After looking at graphs with a constant rate of change, we shifted to graphs that have various rates of change.  I’m a bit disappointed that both graphs I chose were distance-time graphs. This is definitely an area of improvement for next year! Free Download of Rate of Change Interpreting Graphs Practice

Rate of Change Graphic Organizer and Practice Problems

I added a new rate of change graphic organizer this year in our Algebra 1 interactive notebooks. This graphic organizer resulted from making the decision to NOT introduce the term “slope” during our relations and functions unit. Instead, I decided to wait until our linear graphs and inequalities unit to begin referring to rate of …

Finding Slope and Intercepts Foldable

I created this finding slope and intercepts foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. This is the first year I haven’t shown “The Adventures of Slope Dude” in class.  I didn’t have a working projector/SMARTBoard for almost two months, so this affected a lot of how I did things in …

Interpreting Slope and Intercepts Foldable

I created this interpreting slope and intercepts foldable for my Algebra 1 students to complete and glue in their interactive notebooks. I wanted to give my students practice finding slope and intercepts from a graph or a table AND interpreting what those slope and intercepts mean in the context of the graph. My students often …
