Different Forms of Linear Functions Foldable

I created this Different Forms of Linear Functions Foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. In the past, I have taught each different form of linear functions separately. This year, I decided to introduce them all at once. The jury is still kinda out on whether that was a good decision or not…  The test will be to see if I decide to do it the same this year!

Different Forms of Linear Functions Foldable

Slope-Intercept Form

Point-Slope Form

Standard Form

I created this foldable by cutting a letter sized sheet of paper in half length wise. I laid the two pieces of paper one on top of another. Then, I slightly slid up one of the sheets of paper before folding them in two to form the foldable. The distance that you slide the sheet of paper up will determine how wide the tabs at the bottom of the foldable are.

I used this foldable in conjunction with my Different Forms of Linear Functions Flyswatter Game.

Fantastic! I love these things you do with the information. I am trying it next week with my students in Santander, Spain

Thanks so much for sharing!!

Hey Sarah I have been following your blog and utilizing your brilliant work for the past three years. You have help me with my first three years of teaching. I use to have a direct link to all your blog files but my computer took a dump and I no longer have that, would you be willing to share the direct link with me again, please.

Very well done.

Don't forget that if the lines are expressed in standard or point-slope form, there are an infinite number of combinations of coefficients that will give the same line, so there is actually a FOURTH possibility. The lines can COINCIDE. Contrary to popular belief, coincide is NOT what people do when it rains! A little math humor there... ;>)

Starting my Unit 6 today. Can't wait to use Slope Dude with my 8th Grade Algebra 1 Honors kids. Have you decided if you will teach all the types of equations at the same time this year? Thanks! Diana

I haven't decided yet. So many things to think about!
