Published on 11/02/2005

Activity Overview

Use the attached word document to guide your class exploration on linear equations and their graphs.

Before the Activity

Assign each student an x-value between -15 and 15. Students will plug in their x-value to find the y-coordinate of the graph for several curves.

During the Activity

Be sure to focus on student observations during this activity.

After the Activity

Review student results:

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