Activity with Slope, Including a Study of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

Published on 05/04/2009

Activity Overview

This activity contains 4 problems. The first 2 allow the students to notice relationships of slopes and y-intercepts to the location of lines. The second 2 problems help the students find the relationships between the slopes of parallel and perpendicular lines.

Before the Activity

Copies of the Student Worksheet will be needed. The .tns file needs to be loaded on the students' handhelds.

During the Activity

The students should be able to proceed individually through the activity. The teacher may need to help students with the perpendicular relationship. A teacher document is also attached.
