Thanksgiving Graphing Lines Activity ~ Slope Intercept Form
My 8th Grade Math students loved this Thanksgiving Activity! This was the perfect worksheet to help my secondary math students work on graphing linear equations in slope intercept form. The concept of Graphing Lines & Catching Turkeys was so fun my Algebra students! I will definitely be doing this Thanksgiving Math activity again next year!
Algebra 1 Intervention Program : Simplifying Expressions Unit
This unit focuses on simplifying expressions. These skills are not taught in an Algebra 1 course, but students must have a strong knowledge of operations with expressions in order to build into Algebra 1 success. This unit would be a great intervention tool for grades 7 and 8 as well.
