Fun Practice for Graphing Linear Equations


Ok...so you have taught them slope, and y-intercept and ALL the different forms you can write a linear equation.  They have all the information they need, but they need practice.  You could always give them 15 equations straight from the textbook ....or you could give them something fun and engaging.   This was why I created graphing art. 

When I was full-time in the the classroom, I kept looking and looking for something like this, but I never could find what I was looking for. So I created my own...and the kids loved it.  At the time, I wish I had time to create more, but they were very time-consuming to create so I couldn't.  Now that I am on a break from teaching, this was one of the first things I wanted to create.  Fun pictures that were made from graphing linear equations.  After I created one, I realized it definitely needed color.  I also realized I could incorporate one more math skill of finding composite area to apply color. 


    
Students are given an equation written in slope-intercept form.  They then graph the line segment with the given end points.  As they continue through the various equations they will gradually be forming a picture.  They then color the picture given the area of the composite figures.

One last thing, can we mention that grading these pictures is an absolute breeze.  SO much easier than trying to grade 15 individual graphs by students from a textbook.  These literally take a glance to check for accuracy.
