Slope Intercept Worksheet

I know.

Worksheets suck. They don’t teach our kids anything.

But I liked this one, and my kids did too. In fact, they liked the graphing more than they liked the punchline.

I’m never going to be hip.

    Eh. Worksheets have their place. I think it depends on how they are used and the activities/discussions that surround their use.

    I know they do.

    I suppose that I should keep my humor a little bit wetter if I want to continue to avoid using emoticons.

    This worksheet, in particular, happened to be one that the kids were pretty happy about. I make up others that never see the light of day here because I consider them rather pedestrian, and who needs more of that? This one, I’m actually rather proud of.

    Nah, I got your humor on that one. :)

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

    Thanks for sharing. It is a nice way to get that practice in that creates fluency.

    Addressing the worksheet thing, I love to give the students the big picture application, before giving them the practice. But having both is so important to most students feeling successful in math. I will be adding a link to this from my website.

    Thanks again for sharing your work.
