Today I'm sharing a new card sort I made for my students to practicing classifying a relation as a function or not a function. My old card sort for this was stolen from someone else and resized on the

I used these interactive notebook pages during my linear functions unit. Student's had a pretty good understanding of slope and did not need a lot of review. First, we watched the "Adventures of Slope Dude" on YouTube to review the four different types of slope. We also went over this pinwheel that I created and taped it down in our notebooks. I did have students choose four different highlighters to highlight the graphs on the pinwheel. They used these colors throughout the lesson and…

One of my review topics for Algebra 2 was graphing ordered pairs and linear functions. We covered this thoroughly in Algebra 1, but I know ...
