Slope Activities

 

 

Slope can be a difficult topic for students but I’ve made some activities to help.

On Point with Slope

This activity has students find the slope given two points.  Share the activity in presentation mode with your students, here's how. When they find the slope correctly they are advanced to the next question. If they get the question incorrect they are redirected to a video to review and then back to the question.

Hitting the Slopes

This activity has students find the slope from graphs. This is an escape room style slope and progresses from points marked on the graph to graphs without points marked. Share the activity in presentation mode with your students, here's how.

Slope Station

Students use their knowledge of slope to get to their destination along the way they run into obstacles, parallel tracks, and more.  

This is an escape room style activity where students are asked different style slope questions.  They start with ordered pairs then advance to graphs with points.  The final task requires the students to understand what represents slope in a slope-intercept equation and apply their knowledge of steepness to make it to the station.  Share the activity in presentation mode with your students, here's how.

I would suggest using this activity as a check point after teaching slope. While you know your students best I’d suggest completing this activity individually or in pairs.

Pixel Art with Math Problems

    A pixel art activity provides instant feedback and some excitement.  My students enjoy doing these because they can see right away if they are doing the work correct and they also like to race to figure out the picture first.    Integer Operations Add/Subtract Pixel Art This is an online activity where students complete addition and subtraction of integers. The students will input their answer in the table and a color will appear if they are correct. When the students are finished they will have a picture.   Distribute Equations Pixel Art This in an online activity that has students solve equations with the distributive property. Several of the equations also require knowledge of combining like terms after distributing. Students solve the problem and type the answer in the table, if they are correct a color will appear. When the table is filled they will have a picture. One Step Equations Pixel Art This activity is done online in Google Sheets. The students solve each equatio

Pixel Art Activities

    If you are looking for students to practice multiple concepts at once with instant feedback these 2 activities would be great. The first activity hast students write the equation of a line given 2 points.  They start by finding the slope, then the y-intercept, and finally writing the equation.  Each piece along the way will color the picture if they are correct.  I like this instant feedback because my student tend to get frustrated if they do all the work and then when I check it we realize their slope was wrong so they have to start at the beginning again. The second activity is on percent, decimals, and fractions.  This activity requires students to convert between the 3 along with making the fractions mixed numbers.  This is great for middle school classes to practice.  My students tend to struggle with which way to move the decimal so this instant feedback helps them check their answers as they go.   Writing Equations of a Line - Baby Yoda Pixel Art Percent, Decimal, Fraction
