Rewrite Linear Equations Into Standard Form & Slope-Intercept Form Problem Pass Activity

Rewrite Linear Equations Into Standard Form & Slope-Intercept Form Problem Pass Activity

Twelve rounds include practice or review rewriting linear equations from standard form into slope-intercept form and from point-slope form or slope-intercept form into standard form with integer coefficients. Students work with a partner while seated at their desks. They should write in their own notebook or on the blank Answer Sheet (included). At the same time the first pair of students is working on Problem 1, the second pair works on Problem 2, the third pair works on Problem 3, etc. At the teacher’s signal, all students pass their problem in a specific direction. The students who started with Problem 2 should now pass it to the students who started with Problem 1, the students who started with Problem 3 pass it to the students who started with Problem 2, etc. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problem to the last pair of students, or the teacher may prefer to deliver these each time. Students now flip over their new page to find the ANSWER to the problem they just finished. Students continue to work problems in order, pass problems and check their answers on the back of the next problem page until they have completed all problems included in the activity. This activity works well in the middle of a lesson while students are actively practicing a new skill or can be used as a review. The answer key is built into the activity so students check for accuracy themselves. Teacher Setup: Print single-sided copies and slide pages into plastic page protectors to keep problems and answers together. Put Problem 1 and ANSWER Problem 12 back-to-back in the same plastic page protector; put Problem 2 and ANSWER Problem 1 back-to-back in another plastic page protector, Problem 3 and ANSWER Problem 2 together, etc. Prepare 2 or more complete sets of the activity to have enough pages for each pair of students in the class. Keep complete sets in order. It is very important to hand out problems in numerical order so the page with the answer on the back follows its problem number. As you hand out problems in order, problem side up, tell each pair of students the direction they should pass their problem when finished. This direction may vary by row if you zig-zag or “snake” up and down the rows of desks. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problems to the last pair of students, or you may prefer to deliver these each time.

After this first pass together, I’ve allowed students to work and pass problems at their own pace. Teachers may prefer to set a timer so all students pass their current problem to the next pair of students simultaneously. This activity works well in the middle of a lesson while students are actively practicing a new skill or can be used as a review. The answer key is built into the activity so students check for accuracy themselves. Teacher Setup: Print single-sided copies and slide pages into plastic page protectors to keep problems and answers together. Put Problem 1 and ANSWER Problem 12 back-to-back in the same plastic page protector; put Problem 2 and ANSWER Problem 1 back-to-back in another plastic page protector, Problem 3 and ANSWER Problem 2 together, etc. Prepare 2 or more complete sets of the activity to have enough pages for each pair of students in the class. Keep complete sets in order. It is very important to hand out problems in numerical order so the page with the answer on the back follows its problem number. As you hand out problems in order, problem side up, tell each pair of students the direction they should pass their problem when finished. This direction may vary by row if you zig-zag or “snake” up and down the rows of desks. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problems to the last pair of students, or you may prefer to deliver these each time.

Write Linear Equations From Context Problem Pass Activity

Write Linear Equations From Context Problem Pass Activity

Six rounds include practice or review writing linear equations in slope-intercept form and standard form from word problems. Students work with a partner while seated at their desks. They should write in their own notebook or on the blank Answer Sheet (included). At the same time the first pair of students is working on Problem 1, the second pair works on Problem 2, the third pair works on Problem 3, etc. At the teacher’s signal, all students pass their problem in a specific direction. The students who started with Problem 2 should now pass it to the students who started with Problem 1, the students who started with Problem 3 pass it to the students who started with Problem 2, etc. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problem to the last pair of students, or the teacher may prefer to deliver these each time. Students now flip over their new page to find the ANSWER to the problem they just finished. Students continue to work problems in order, pass problems and check their answers on the back of the next problem page until they have completed all problems included in the activity. This activity works well in the middle of a lesson while students are actively practicing a new skill or can be used as a review. The answer key is built into the activity so students check for accuracy themselves. Teacher Setup: Print single-sided copies and slide pages into plastic page protectors to keep problems and answers together. Put Problem 1 and ANSWER Problem 6 back-to-back in the same plastic page protector; put Problem 2 and ANSWER Problem 1 back-to-back in another plastic page protector, Problem 3 and ANSWER Problem 2 together, etc. Prepare 2 or more complete sets of the activity to have enough pages for each pair of students in the class.

Solve Quadratic Word Problems Relay Activity

Solve Quadratic Word Problems Relay Activity

Four rounds include practice solving quadratic word problems in context with area problems and vertical motion problems. Separate students into groups of four and give each student their own copy of Round 1. Students should discuss the problem as they work on it and agree on the correct answer. Once each student in the group has the correct answer, ONE person from the group takes ONE Round 1 sheet to have it checked by the teacher. If the answer is correct, the student then picks up four copies of Round 2 for the group. If the answer is not correct, the teacher sends the student back so the group can correct Round 1. Groups continue working until each round is completed and checked by the teacher for accuracy. This activity works well early in a lesson when students are actively learning a new skill or as a review. The discussion and collaboration in the small groups enhance the students’ learning. The answer key for the teacher is included. Teacher Setup: Print enough copies (one-sided) for each student to have his/her own. Cut pages on the dotted lines to separate rounds into separate stacks (all of Round 1 is in one stack, Round 2 is in a different stack, etc.). After handing out Round 1, keep stacks of Round 2, Round 3, etc. and only allow students to take the next round in order when their group is ready for it. Included in the package: • Four relay rounds • Answer Key for Teacher CCSS: Understand the concept of a function and use function notation. HSF.IF.A.2 Use function notation, evaluate functions for inputs in their domains, and interpret statements that use function notation in terms of a context. CCSS: Solve equations and inequalities in one variable. HSA.REI.B.4 Solve quadratic equations in one variable. HSA.REI.B.4b Solve quadratic equations by inspection (e.g., for x2 = 49), taking square roots, completing the square, the quadratic formula and factoring, as appropriate to the initial form of the equation. Recognize when the quadratic formula gives complex solutions and write them as a ± bi for real numbers a and b. CCSS: Analyze functions using different representations. HSF.IF.C.8a Use the process of factoring and completing the square in a quadratic function to show zeros, extreme values, and symmetry of the graph, and interpret these in terms of a context.
