Algebra 1 INB Pages - Unit 6 Linear Functions

Still working through my draft folder.  And, I happened upon some INB pages that I somehow forgot to post this year.  I posted snippets of some of these, but never the entire unit.  Don't worry.  I'll rectify the situation today!  If you're in a hurry, the new, never posted pages, are at the very beginning and towards the middle.  As always, the link to these files is at the bottom of the post.

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
70 Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

Read more about the Slope Name Art assignment here.

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.

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

  2. Starting 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

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

  3. Very well done.

    Don'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... ;>)

  4. Hey 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.
