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 my classroom. The majority of my kids had already seen the video in their middle school math class.
My students did NOT want to do algebra to solve for the non-integer x-intercepts! Instead, they just wanted to estimate. I guess it didn’t help that the examples I picked crossed half-way between two integers, so their estimates always ended up being correct. Next time, I will make an equation that crosses at something like 1.2.
