Mixed Practice Equations of Lines

Just before our Thanksgiving Break, we had a rare "review" day ... a much needed review day.  My students have found manipulating equations of lines difficult.  They understand the basic concepts but struggle with the details.  Students are weak in working with integers in particular.  So they often drop significant positive or negative signs.

I gave students 8 pieces of information.  They had to use the information to write the related equation in slope-intercept form and standard form.  They had to identify the slope and intercept, and then graph the function.

Here is the practice students completed:  Mixed Practice Equations of Lines

Here is the Word Document version:  Mixed Practice Equations of Lines

Next stop ... transformations of lines!


  1. Hi Beth,

    Shared your post on twitter, and math teachers are loving it! One is asking if you have an editable version of the practice handout.

    I'll find it and post it. Glad it is helpful!

  3. Beth, I think Dan was referring to me. Thanks for the word doc! :)

    Glad to help!

  5. I love this! I wish I hadn't just finished that unit, but I may give this to them as practice anyways. This year they are just struggling with changing from one equation to the other and identifying the key parts. Thank you for sharing!
