Sort Students into Groups using Linear Representations

In this activities students are each given one card. The card will either have a graph, table of values or equation of a linear relation. Their job is to find the two other students who have the other two representations of the same linear relationship. This shouldn't take too long and could be repeated every couple of days to solidify conversion between representations
MPM1D, MFM2P  - 
  • graph lines by hand, using a variety of techniques
  • identify, through investigation with technology, the geometric significance of m and b in the equation y = mx + b
  • Download the cards and cut them out (you may want to laminate them)
  1. Shuffle the cards and distribute one per student. Note that there are 11 sets of 3 cards so you may want to remove sets to more closely match your student population.
  2. Students will find the other people who have the same linear relationship
