Slope Math Detective Digital Activity

Are your students ready to solve the case? To solve the mystery, students will need to be able to find the slope using two points, the equation of a line and graphs. Students follow clues, written and visual, to solve a mystery. An engaging way to practice, review or assess slope.

This product includes:
- Detective Scenario
- Map of locations
- Clickable clues with the slope of linear equations
- Complete teacher's guide and answer key

Digital resources are great for differentiating. These provide a great way for students to work in a 1:1 environment. Easy to assess or for homework.

A pencil-and-paper version of this resource is available here.

Finding the slope is part of the common core standard 8.EE.B.6. and HSA-CED.A.2

A great addition to your pre-Algebra and Algebra class. My students love this activity. Use at math centers, station activities or for whole class practice and review.
