This past year I had a group of math students who really loved to be creative and especially loved to color!
So, when we were learning about slope in class I wanted some kind of creative project for my students to do where they could show their knowledge in a way that was more creative than a worksheet or quiz!
I searched around on the internet and Pinterest, and saw several versions of the slope stained glass window project, but none of them really fit the specific needs I had for my class.
So...I made my own version of this project so I could include everything I needed, and it is now in my Teachers Pay Teachers store!
In this project students had to choose several linear equations from a list and create a table of values that they plugged in to the equations to create x and y coordinates for each line.
They also determined the slope of each line, whether the slope was positive, negative, zero or undefined, and x and/or y intercepts.
Then they had to graph the lines on graph paper. Each line needed to be labeled with the corresponding equation.
Bring on the colors! I gave my students free range on what they used to add color to their design. Crayons, colored pencils, markers, chalk....anything they wanted. I encouraged them to put together a nice color scheme to make their final product visually appealing.
My class LOVED this project! Here are some of their finished projects!
I love doing projects with my math students! Giving students another way to show what they know and actually apply the skills to a project (not just a worksheet) really hooks my students interest!
If you like this project, it is available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store!
