Classifying Equations of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

This Classifying Equations of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines lesson plan also includes:

Parallel parking might be difficult, but finding parallel lines is fairly simple. In this instructional activity, learners first complete an assessment task involving parallel and perpendicular lines in the coordinate plane. Individuals then take part in a card activity sorting linear equations based on the properties of their graphs.

Instructional Ideas
  • Use the resource to review parallel and perpendicular lines
Classroom Considerations
  • Cards need to be cut out before the activity (or have pupils cut them out themselves)
  • Lesson involves geometric shapes in the coordinate plane formed from parallel and perpendicular lines
  • Includes projector resources to use with whole-group discussion
  • Provides guiding questions to prompt learners
  • Contains typos (such as identifying standard domain as G-PE, rather than G-GPE)
