# Writing Linear Equations Graphic Organizer

I created this set of writing linear equations graphic organizers to give my Algebra 1 students practice writing linear equations given a graph, intercepts, a set of points, or a point and a slope.

Students are given several pieces of information, and they have to figure out every single other piece of information. I love it!

Finding some of the information (usually standard form and sometimes x-intercepts) requires writing out work. As you can see in the photo above, we wrote the work on the back of the half-sheet.

We stapled all of our practice sheets together at the top. We only glued in the back page to save paper.

Another thing I’m proud of is the fact that I required my students to write a parallel and perpendicular line. I think a big problem I’ve had in the past with teaching parallel and perpendicular lines is that we did them for a day or two and that was it. This year, I’m trying to incorporate them throughout the unit. This is leading to a much deeper and lasting understanding!

I couldn't find the files for your practice pages after the "forms of linear equations" foldable, or the last practice on writing inequalities from graphs. Can you let me know where they are? This unit is really helping my students with skills needed for systems.

Thanks

Debbie

I would love those practice pages too!

Hi Sarah,

I was wondering if you had a copy of the Description of Graph foldable practice under the LG 3. Please share if you do–I couldn't find them in your files. Thanks! Email: smalik@bostonpublicschools.org

Hi Sarah! I absolutely love your blog! Is there anyway I could get the digital file of "The Four Types of Slope" with name art page? I love that idea for introducing slope!

Could you also share the Writing inequalities document? I love your work!

Do you have a file for the practice problems? I love how they are set up to have them get all of the information in one place. THANK YOU! I would also love the Four Types of Slope and writing inequalities. APPRECIATE IT!

I just sent you an email with the files!

Could I get the file for the practice problems you have listed at the beginning also? Love how these are all set up in one place.

I just emailed you what I THINK is the file you are looking for.

Hi Sarah! Could I get an email of those practice problems as well? I love how thorough they are!

Email sent!

Hi Sarah! I would also love the practice pages for Writing Inequalities if you are willing to share.

I *think* this is the file you are looking for. If it isn’t, let me know and I will try to find the correct file!
