Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Graphing Linear Functions (Day 2 of 2) - Section 2: Review

 

Some of my students mistakenly move to the wrong direction when graphing lines in slope intercept form. Because of this error I chose to re-word the frequently used “rise over run” to “rise over right” to help students correctly graph the line.

Another way that I reinforce this process is to ask students to count to 10 aloud. Students then begin counting “1, 2, 3…”. As they do this, I ask them to identify the sequence of numbers on the x axis that corresponds to what they are saying. Forcing students to count forward is the same as moving to the right on the x axis, as you do not count forwards by saying “-1, -2, -3….”.
