Interpreting Graphs INB Page

I was a little nervous to teach about interpreting graphs in Algebra 1.  However, it went really well and it was kind of fun!

First, I made this giant foldable.  I made it on legal paper, so it took the entire page of my student’s notebooks.  I'm really starting to love legal paper, ya’ll.  A half sheet of legal paper takes up the entire notebook page (nicely!).  Anyway, I used bubble letters for students to color in the emphasized words.  My students had a hard time deciding when to use a curve versus a line.

When we finished the foldable, I had my students each write a story.  Then, they traded with their partners and drew a graph that went with their partner’s story.  Next they drew a graph and their partner had to come up with a story that matched the graph.  We did a few rounds of this until the end of the class period.

    1. When you click the pink link, you should be taken to the pdf copy on box.com. You may have to have an account there, but I'm not sure. You will be able to download it from box.

  2. Do your students have trouble with the board scenario? My students want to see the board on the graph (horizontal) and the actual cutting (vertical).

    1. Not really. Since it's at the beginning of the lesson I kind of drive the conversation though.
