Reflection: Checks for Understanding Assessment of Graphing Lines through Art! - Section 2: Stained Glass Activity


My students enjoyed this activity a great deal. As they worked I observed mistakes with in the calculation of the slope of a line. There were fewer mistakes with the labeling of points or intercepts. 

I have provided 3 examples of student work to show the finished product. Student 2 did not write the equation for the lines.

Based on my assessment of my students work today, I will continue to review graphing lines using different methods and analyzing different parts of the line in spiral review and future lessons.

Assessment of Graphing Lines through Art!

Unit 3: Linear Functions
Lesson 11 of 20

Objective: SWBAT Graph oblique, horizontal, and vertical lines from an equation using the method of their choice, a t-table, slope intercept form, or x and y intercept method.

Big Idea: The purpose of this lesson is for students to master graphing lines, and, to clear up the confusion that x= and y= can represent the equations of vertical and horizontal lines, respectively.
