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.

Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template

  This template is set for 3 sets of answers.  I have the answers that are currently set, you will need to reformat them to use with your content.   Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template Be on the lookout for this activity given 2 ordered pairs and asking for slope, y-intercept, and the equation of a line.  I'm also formatting this for converting between percents, decimals, and fractions.  If you want to reformat it before I post the above activities here is how. 

Long Division in Google Docs

  I was making a long division worksheet for my students in Google Docs when I realized that it wasn't under equations. Here's how to insert it.  This does not look very pretty so I have another video on how I do it in Google Sheets which takes longer but looks nicer. 

Blooket Game

  A week ago my students kept asking to play Blooket so I looked into it.  Blooket is much like Kahoot and Gimkit but they earn money.  Blooket has several different game modes and the students LOVE IT.  Once a student has been eliminated they will keep playing to earn more gold which they can use to buy rare items.  Each week Blooket has a theme and those rare items can be bought for the week and then they are gone; the items include accessories or special characters they can play as.  My students will play for hours if we let them.  When we finish a game they are ready for another round.  Blooket has a FREE version which has been enough for my class but you can also upgrade to a paid version.  They have games that are already made or you can create a new game.   My students love the battle royale mode and the gold quest the best.  If you haven't given it a try I would highly suggest it.
