Today we started this slope-intercept matching activity from

**Math Giraffe at teacherspayteachers.com.**How I love teacherspayteachers.com.

**I can make great foldables but not these activities. This one is well worth the price.**

**Students match graphs, slope and y-intercepts and equations. The only thing I added to this activity was to number the graphs from 1-10 so they could put the first ten in order to make it easier for grading. Everyone was talking and working hard today and that makes it a good day.**

I don't know why they will not clear their desks off so they have room to work. Why????

I prefer to have partners for this but when there is an odd number we have one

group of three. Great collaboration with this group.

There is a template included for the pieces to be glued to but

I had extra colored paper I needed to use.

.
Deep concentration here. I love it:)

This is a short quick post but I am trying to stay to my three post per week. So far I'm on track for this week. YES!!! I am having so much fun this quarter and my students are loving this too. I'm hoping that the videos and notes get better. This quarter is flying by. Wow.

Til next time,

I love to use card matching games in my math classes also! I also like pairs so they can help each other out. One thing I have learned that helps is if each type of card (equation, graph, description) is a different color, that helps some students understand how to create the set (one yellow, one red, one green). You can also differentiate this activity by giving higher-level students more difficult sets.

ReplyDeleteWhat a great idea to color code the graphs, points no equation! I will do that next time I use a matching activity. Thanks for taking time to leave a comment!
