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.

Examples:

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.
