Slope-Intercept Form Four-In-A-Row Game
The unique thing about this game is that students get to CHOOSE whether to mark off the slope of the line on each card or the y-intercept, so they can use strategy for what is most beneficial to mark off on their card to try to win, and they get extra practice at the same time. They will be motivated to find and test both, increasing their familiarity with slope intercept form of a line.
This game is great practice for finding slopes and y-intercepts from a graph. Students play in small groups and take turns. After drawing a card with a graph of a line, the student has a choice whether to cross off the slope of the line OR the y-intercept of the line on the grid-style game board sheet. Four spaces marked off in a row results in a win!
Students can use strategy with their choices, but must state the slope or y-intercept aloud for other players to verify.
Reviews from Other Teachers:
- This was my favorite review of slope intercept for my 8th grade learning support math class! They all were engaged and actually were reviewing the material we had been learning right before our assessment!
- So engaging for my summer school students!
- Fun activity and easy to use!
- Brigid's 4 in a row resources are the best! This is another great one to add into my collection to use on a consistent basis!
- This was great practice on matching equations and graphs!
- A fun way for students to work together and check each others work.
- I used this for my GT Geometry kids to review slope and linear equations. They absolutely loved it. I will probably use it for my Pre-Algebra kids too since it was such a hit!
- Thank you! I love ALL of your resources SO much!
- My Algebra students love playing games - they really enjoyed this one!
- I liked the versatility of this game where they are able to choose identifying the slope and y-intercept.
