Fun ideas and activities for teaching parallel and perpendicular lines for middle school math class.

Practice and review of linear equations of perpendicular lines. Students can work collaboratively to sort equations that contain a set of perpendicular lines from those that do not. The equations come in multiple levels so you can easily differentiate for your entire class providing a challenge for some as well as a more scaffolded activity for others. #cardsort #linearequations #slopeinterceptform #differentiated #perpendicularlines #middleschool #mathteacher #mathclassroom #mathclass

We’re more than okay with being parallel lines. but trust me we’ve met, lemme tell ya. we’re anything but strangers now

Mrs. Hester's Classroom : parallel lines and transversals

Students can use the claim, evidence and reasoning structure to support and explain claims made in math as well. Here students will be given a set of equations and asked if these lines will create a given shape (rectangle, parallelogram, trapezoid and right triangle). Students will then make a claim (either yes or no) and collect evidence to support that claim. #msmath #middleschoolmath #CER

Parallel Lines Investigation

You’ve never realized how hopelessly sad simple geometry can be until now…

Equations of Parallel & perpendicular lines. Ss sort 12 equations into piles however they want. First hint: there should be 3 piles. Second hint: how many cards should be in each pile. Piles are slope-intercept, point-slope and standard form.

Lines in Geometry... Love the triangles and circles to give emphasis to the type of line!
