Standard Form of Linear Functions - X and Y Intercept Scavenger Hunt (Set of 15)

Standard Form of Linear Functions - X and Y Intercept Scavenger Hunt (Set of 15)

This 15 poster scavenger hunt requires students to examine the characteristics of linear function graphs. Have students analyze a question and find the graph that matches the information. Students will: Determine the x and y-intercepts for a linear equation written in standard form. After finding the information, students will find the graph that matches their intercepts. Students will write down the correct letter on their answer sheet. Extension idea - Have students rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form. This is a great review of intercepts from standard form after instruction or before a test.

Transformation of Functions (Treasure Hunt)

Transformation of Functions (Treasure Hunt)

As an extra to this Treasure Hunt the answers to the questions give an encrypted clue (for students to decipher) which reveals where the treasure is hidden. This particular activity helps to strengthen students' skills in substituting one algebraic expression into another. [CLICK HERE] for a list of similar style Treasure Hunts on other topics. A Treasure Hunt is a great activity which children love. They are ideal for revision, starters or plenaries. They are a really great way to get students to answer questions quickly and enjoy doing so! These question cards have been prepared in two sizes. This allows them to be easily used for a whole class activity, group work or by individuals. The loop cards are particularly helpful during interventions.

.... is saving for (aka Linear relationships)

.... is saving for (aka Linear relationships)

Christine is saving for a holiday. She is able to save some money per month. To get started Christine's grandparents are going to put in $500. This is the starting scenario - look at saving $50 per month and then two other options. Looking at the relationship between graph, table and equation of the data in the tables and investigate the link to gradient and y-intercept. A starting place for a unit on linear graphs (if students don't know gradient, teach it in context or skip that part)

Battle'kins! A halloween themed game based on coordinates and battleships.

A resource which can be used as a lesson, revision or as a fun activity in the lead up to Halloween. Children take on the teacher. The teacher plots their pumpkins(15-20) around their grid. It is the job of the children to 'smash' all the pumpkins in the least number of guesses possible. Teachers can decide on rewards for successful hits. A bonus reward is to be given if a child finds the witch! The game can also be played in pairs, without the teacher's involvement. The grids are provided and there a 3 levels of difficulty.
