## Slope Art Assignment

During my first year of teaching, I assigned my students to draw a picture and label the different types of slope in the picture to create slope art.  Then, last year, I changed things up and had them label the different types of slope that could be found in their name.  I liked this activity, …

## Four Types of Slope Foldable

After learning about the four types of slope and watching The Adventures of Slope Dude, we made a four types of slope foldable to glue in our interactive notebooks in order to summarize what we learned. I completed this with my Algebra 1 classes. Read more about the Slope Name Art assignment here. We made …

## Four Cars Task for Introducing Rate of Change

I really like this four cars task from The Dana Center for introducing rate of change. This was one of the activities featured in the 2013 Common Core Workshop I attended (OGAP). I am blogging about the activities we did last summer so that they are easier for me to find when I go to …

## Slope and Intercept Practice Poof Book

I want to share a downloadable template I created for a slope and intercept practice poof book. I made it to give my students practice finding the slope and intercepts of a line that goes through two given points. I think I’ve done a better job this year of introducing x- and y-intercepts in Algebra …

## Four Types of Slope Name Art Activity

I’ve come across the idea of creating four types of slope name art from multiple places online, so I’m not exactly sure who to credit.  Most recently, I learned of it from Pam J. Wilson and Mrs. Hester.  It’s a variation on two activities that I did last year.  So, my students have been working …

## Rate of Change Graphic Organizer

We created this rate of change graphic organizer to glue in our algebra interactive notebooks. This year, I emphasized rate of change much more than I did last year.   I used this as an opportunity to constantly review the difference between dependent and independent variables.  Whenever students would struggle with interpreting the rate of …

## Rise Over Run Reminders

My Algebra 1 students created this page in their interactive notebooks to help them remember how to do rise over run. We glued in a positive and a negative sign. One each symbol, we wrote the directions to rise and run in order to make each type of slope. Download Plus and Minus Signs

My Algebra 1 students recently completed a four types of slope pictures project. I’m excited to share the resulting slope artwork with you! This weekend and today were spent attending my first ever student council state convention.  It was full of fun and games and amazing speakers, but I have to admit that I am …

## Slope Foldable

Less than a year ago, I made my first every foldable – a slope foldable.  It was one of those random ideas you get in the shower.  Or maybe I’m the only person who thinks about how to teach various math concepts in the shower… I made it.  I loved it.  I blogged about it.  …
