I have a huge folder with lots of unfinished blog posts in it, so I think it’s time that I start posting them!
This is an interactive notebook page idea for calculating slope from two points. Students should have notes on the left side of the page, and on the right side of the page, they have have this practice activity.
I will probably use this next year with my algebra 1 kids. I may make little pockets for the slopes though. Then they can practice sorting and resorting the slopes instead of having them glued in.
I really like that this has examples with a slope of zero and an undefined slope. I try to include this in EVERY SINGLE thing I make with slopes, because students seem to still have so much trouble with it when they get to geometry.
You can find this activity here.
