The following assignment is one that comes at the end of our chapter on graphing linear equations. I ask students to design a picture on graph paper using 10 lines with positive slope, 10 lines with negative slope, 5 lines with zero slope, and 5 lines with undefined slope. Students are to give the equation for the line in slope-intercept form, but you could use Standard form, or point-slope form if desired. Here are just a few of my students' final projects.
national news. The young man, Nathan Stiles, was one of my former students. I had him for both Pre-Algebra and Algebra. He was one of the finest young men I have ever had the opportunity to teach. His life touched many others. Nathan was one of those kids that everyone looked up to and admired...and he had a kind word for everyone that he saw. One of my students designed her line art for Nathan, using his football jersey number. Nathan loved to read his bible, and his parents have started up The Nathan Project in his honor. It's nice to see a little of Nathan rubbing off on the rest of us left behind.
