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!

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!

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!

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
