Our unit on equations of lines has been rocky! Students are still on a very slippery slope as we head into the test next week. We do have one review day coming up – I am trying to plan well for that work!
In the meanwhile, Friday we spent a short while on translations of lines in context. What if we graph this first situation … and then the situation changes. Students seem to understand graphing, lines, and equations so much better in context! Yea! Better celebrate where I can <smile!>
To conclude that lesson, I modified a task that was passed around in our PLC – Equations of Lines in Context.
I think I may create another similar task for our review in order to build on the success we experienced Friday!
