Activity Overview

This activity is designed as a review of linear equations. Students will review slope, functions, writing equations in slope-intercept form, and point-slope form.

Before the Activity

Students should be familiar with slope, writing equations in slope-intercept form, point-slope form and functions. Students should also be familiar with the navigator software using quick poll.

During the Activity

1. Have students log in to navigator system. 2. Open the linear equations and function review powerpoint. Also, have a quick point question open, or you can send the quick poll from your calculator. 3. You can either let the students see the question before you send them a quick poll or you can send them a quick poll first before seeing the question. 4.
