Equations from a Straight Line Worksheet

(3)
Double sided worksheet with 24 straight line graphs for pupils to write down the equation of. ranging from positive gradients to negative, and then fractional gradients. EDIT: I recently did a lesson on this topic with some higher set year 11's, so have produced a second, harder sheet that includes axes with different scales, forcing pupils to use "change in y/change in x" to find gradient instead of just going one across and counting squares. The new sheet is only one sided, but is more suitable for higher attaining pupils. Answers now included.

If they get it correct they can put their initials over the space, and the goal is to get four squares in a row. The pupils could also used coloured post-its or counters. Answers are included.
