Conquering the Coordinate Plane!

My students need wet-erase graph poster paper for group projects and graph stamps to use on their individual paper to make drawing the coordinate plane quicker.

My Students

This project is intended for Algebra 1 students in 7th and 8th grade. I teach at a high-needs Title I school where resources are extremely low. My students are taking a high-school level course in middle school, and really show motivation and determination for learning.

I would love for them to have the resources and materials that would help them succeed as mathematicians and build their excitement for learning.

One of the areas that Algebra students struggle in is graphing equations. I want to incorporate more hands-on opportunities for students to master this skill!

My Project

One of the biggest struggles with Algebra 1 students is understanding how to graph functions in the coordinate plane. My project is designed the have the students use hands-on materials to truly understand how to graph functions.

With the wet-erase graph poster paper, students will have the opportunity to demonstrate understanding of the necessary skills of graphing in the coordinate plane.

They will also be able to use the graph stamp for their individual papers to further practice these skills.

My Algebra students will be separated into small groups with supplemental activities to learn about graphing. With these hands-on materials, students will be excited and motivated to learn every day!
