To demonstrate mastery of graphing lines, you will need to:
1. Graph a line for each of the following situations:
a. positive slope b. negative slope c. zero slope d. undefined slope
Options for demonstrating your mastery:
1. You are talking with your friend over the phone. Explain to him or her how to graph a line. Your friend is not the brightest! 2. Create a picture book for middle school students on how to graph linear equations..
Instructions for phone conversation.
Write the dialogue between you and your friend explaining how to graph lines. Make sure you include questions your friend will ask you and how you would answer them. Be sure to include equations with positive, negative, zero, and undefined slopes and equations with zero, positive, and negative y-intercepts.
Instructions for picture book.
Your book must completely address the step-by-step procedures for how to graph a line. This includes how to graph equations with positive, negative, zero, and undefined slopes and equations with zero, positive, and negative y-intercepts. Make it creative and fun with lots of pictures explaining what your words mean. Include a minimum of 10 problems that you create. The 10 problems should collectively demonstrate every situation you might encounter.
