Applying Similar Triangles to Finding the Slope of a LInear Equation Concluded

Unit 7: Linear Equations in two Variables
Lesson 16 of 23

Objective: Structure the same lesson in three ways so that each student group learns a different connection between similar triangles and the slope of a linear equation.

Big Idea: Students take ownership and bring their 8th grade year full circle then present their ideas to the class.
