Writing Linear Equations Using Activity Center and Houses!

Published on 10/14/2005

Activity Overview

Students will write linear equations given two points. The two points will be the location of the students' houses. They will partner with someone and try to make an equation that will go through the two houses which are coordinates shown on the activity center background.

Before the Activity

You need to search for a good map of the city or area in which your students live. I did a google search until I found a good map.

During the Activity

Follow the outline given in the attached pdf.

After the Activity

Review student results:

  • As a class, discuss questions that appeared to be more challenging
  • Re-teach concepts as necessary
