All sorts of slope 4 ways

Positive, negative, zero and undefined slope activity

So much learning happens in Algebra and slope is one of the core topics. I love fun, hands-on activities for teaching slope. When kids come out of Algebra having enjoyed most of it, math from then on becomes a whole lot more accessible.

Algebra is so important, and it directly links to higher mathWe know it's crucial, so does this mean Algebra needs to be super serious? No way! 

Even for my older Algebra 2 students, I love assigning activities where they cut and paste. There is something so low-anxiety about it that it allows my students to relax and reflect on their day. My students are always so stressed out about what they have going on that a little creativity is a great break. The post Fun Slope Activity Ideas has more engaging slope activities, including the slope pennant above.
