Students will explore how rate of change is revealed in the equations, tables and graphs of linear functions. Students will learn about the rate of change in the contexts of real-world functions modeling the distance a car has traveled over time. They will represent slope conceptually as velocity, algebraically using change in y over change in x and graphically using a slope triangle.
Check out our flipped classroom animated math lesson on finding and using slope! This lesson is perfect for students with a visual learning preference and is aligned with the common core learning standards for Algebra I. You can access all of our video lessons at youtube.com/mashupmath!
*** I updated these posters and put them on sale to celebrate. 50% OFF! *** I love these posters for two reasons! 1) The illustrations help students understand sixth grade math concepts like ratios and proportions, number sense, fractions, expressions and equations, geometry, and statistics. 2) The bundle has EVERY sixth grade math concept in one small file that I'll never LOSE! Way easier to keep track of than anchor charts!:
New Product! Half price until October 5! Color coded word wall cards for 8th grade math. Every card has an example to help students grasp eighth grade math concepts like functions, the number system, expressions and equations, geometry, and statistics. The color coding makes it easy to stay organized and identify the different domains. You can even print them smaller and black & white for pasting into interactive journals.
My students love these scavenger hunts. I have never seen them so actively engaged and excited about the distributive property. It is self-checking and allowed me to work 1-on-1 with students who needed remediation. Awesome!
