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

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. 

Gimkit Tag Domination

  Gimkit came out with a new mode called Tag: Domination.  This is currently one of my students favorite modes(fishtopia is the other).  This game is similar to physical tag.  Students are split into 2 teams.  To earn energy to run and get upgrades, students must correctly answer questions.  The time to tag and run away alternate and students can see which one they are in on the top left of the screen.  At the end, the team with the most tag win.
