Math, Linear Equations

I. Objectives
How does this lesson connect to the unit plan? This activity is going to pull together everything they have learned and give them
an extra chance to prepare for the test. They should know how to do all of it, but can use notes/book if needed.

Find points on a graph of a line (#1)

Find slope given two points (#2)
Write equations in point-slope form and slope-intercept form (#3, 5)
Find x- and y-intercepts (#4)
Create a word problem to describe a graph (#7)


Common Core standards (or GLCEs if not available in Common Core) addressed: 8.EE.5 Graph proportional relationships,
interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships presented in different ways.
8.EE.6 Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the
coordinate plane; derive the equation y=mx for a line through the origin and the equation y=mx+b for a line intercepting the vertical
axis at b. 8.F.4 Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial
value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (x,y) values, including reading these from a table or from a
graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or
a table of values.
(Note: Write as many as needed. Indicate taxonomy levels and connections to applicable national or state standards. If an objective applies to particular learners
write the name(s) of the learner(s) to whom it applies.)

they want. Tennis balls, water, and graph paper at front.

III. The Plan



Describe teacher activities

for each component of the lesson. Include important higher order thinking questions and/or
Hand out assignment sheets and read through the
Listen, follow along, answer questions, ask
problems. Point out on my graph what they are
questions and take notes if needed
doing for each problem as I read. Have them call
out the equation forms and formulas as I get to
Show how to roll the ball to get a good line (at an
angle so that it will cross both axes)


Get into pairs and come up to me to get ball, water,

and graph paper.
Walk around and assist as needed during activity.

Complete activity.

If time is left, have students share what the

question they came up with was for their line.


(the largest
component or
main body of
the lesson)



If there is even more time, ask what the trickiest

part of this chapter is and go over an example
problem for this section.

Your reflection about the lesson, including evidence(s) of student learning and engagement, as well as ideas for improvement
for next time. (Write this after teaching the lesson, if you had a chance to teach it. If you did not teach this lesson, focus on the
process of preparing the lesson.)

The students were more confused than I was anticipating. I originally planned for this lesson to come after they had done a
review guide and act as a last minute test prep, but the test got moved so they didnt have their review guide. I think that
taking that into consideration, however, the students ended up doing fairly well. They could remember how to do things with
some prompting, and were able to complete about half of the work I intended them to finish. The students all seemed to be
participating as well instead of just sitting around waiting for their partner to finish the work. They were all trying to figure
out the answer instead of just giving up and asking for help. They also knew when they needed to ask for help, however, and
werent afraid to do so. Overall this activity started to trigger some things that they will need to know, so I think that even
though it didnt go as well as I planned it was still helpful to them. I think because of the time switch for the test it would have
been better to do a review day today and then do this activity right before the test as planned.
