I present to you:

Unit 6: Linear Functions

This pic is old. Here's the rest of the table of contents:

61 Finding Slope From A Graph

62 Finding Slope From A Table

63 Finding Slope From 2 Pts.

64 Linear Function Vocabulary

65-66 Linear/Non-Linear Practice

67 X- and Y- Intercepts

68 Different Forms of Linear Functions

69 HOYVUX

70 Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

Read more about Slope Dude here.

I actually had the students draw 3 examples of each type of slope. I only put one example of each in my notebook to keep a student from copying my notebook and not having to think!

I use these little light bulb post-it notes I got from Target to mark things in my notebook to change for next year.

I had my students design their own notebook pages over finding slope. That was an experience that I'll try to blog about ASAP.

I posted about our linear/non-linear practice pages here.

And, I blogged about our x- and y-intercept notes here.

The next set of images are ones I haven't shared with you before. Oops... This year, I decided to teach all of the different forms of linear functions at once. The jury is still kinda out on whether that was a good decision or not... The test will be to see if I decide to do it the same this year!

I've already posted about our HOY VUX notes here.

This year's parallel and perpendicular notes are very similar / almost identical to last year's notes.

I love it when you share your interactive notebook pages. This post has everything I need to get started on this unit. Thanks!

ReplyDeleteYou're very welcome Jan!

DeleteThank you so much!

ReplyDeleteStarting my Unit 6 today. Can't wait to use Slope Dude with my 8th Grade Algebra 1 Honors kids. Have you decided if you will teach all the types of equations at the same time this year? Thanks! Diana

ReplyDeleteI haven't decided yet. So many things to think about!

DeleteAmazing ideas!

ReplyDeleteThank you!

DeleteVery well done.

ReplyDeleteDon't forget that if the lines are expressed in standard or point-slope form, there are an infinite number of combinations of coefficients that will give the same line, so there is actually a FOURTH possibility. The lines can COINCIDE. Contrary to popular belief, coincide is NOT what people do when it rains! A little math humor there... ;>)

Very good point!

DeleteHey Sarah I have been following your blog and utilizing your brilliant work for the past three years. You have help me with my first three years of teaching. I use to have a direct link to all your blog files but my computer took a dump and I no longer have that, would you be willing to share the direct link with me again, please.
