for students who are struggling with looking at an equation and being able to graph the transformations: buy pipe cleaners and used the graph side of white boards. Write a parent function on the board and add one transformation at a time. Students should manipulate the pipe cleaner on the board as the transformation is written. Really clicks for some students.

Students are constantly confusing surface area and volume of rectangular prisms and cylinders. This product includes 18 situations cards, 36 calculation cards, and 1 sort page. Students will read, decide and sort each card into the appropriate category.
Dan Meyer's first day of school activity for algebra. How many cups tall am I?? -- Good idea, but why not do it with something the students are more interested in, like... stacks of (play) money? skateboards? younger siblings? Could also be done in reverse to find out what fraction you are of the height of... the Eiffel Tower? Your favorite athlete? School Activ, Cup Tall

Writing slope-intercept form equations notes
Writing Equations of Lines Foldable
X and Y Intercepts Group Investigation ~ Students work together in a self discovery to figure out how to find the X and Y intercepts of a line just by using the linear equation. Students may ask for the provided hint cards if they are having difficulty. However, hint cards lower the group's grade.

Person Puzzle Girl Power! Algebra -- Rewriting Linear Equations in Slope Intercept Form -- Babe Didrikson Zaharias
Linear Equations Round Table Activity! This activity practices graphing lines, writing equations in slope-intercept form, and identifying the standard form equation that is equivalent to the slope-intercept form.
This activity consists of 8 centers. Each center consists of 6 problems related to writing equations of lines in slope-intercept form.Many of the slopes are fractions as well as many of the y-intercepts. I also gave some parallel and perpendicular line equations in standard form for practice in solving for y.
Terrific stations for slope and linear equations
Ive seen a few variations of using the famous game Battleship in math class. Who among us hasnt used it (or at least the concept) when reinforcing graphing coordinate pairs? Taking it in a slightly more advanced direction, lets make a 4 quadrant Battleship grid. And lets require kids to write equations in slope-intercept form, graph them, and develop a strategy for this process. (Putting equations in point-slope would be a great substitute if you want one.)

Math Libs - Graphing Linear Equations - Intercepts, Slope, Slope-intercept
Math Libs - Graphing Linear Equations - Intercepts, Slope, Slope-Intercept - This activity will get your students out of their seats and working cooperatively in small groups. They will use their knowledge of intercepts, slope, slope-intercept form, and graphing in order to solve problems.
For Ss who are really struggling with how to find the equation of a line between two points - Have them fill out this "skeleton" of the problem. Put this sheet in a sheet protector to be used again and again.
