Students Teaching Equations of a Line
Students are divided into groups and then each group is assigned a separate topic related to the equation of a line. Each group researches their topic and then they teach the rest of the groups about it.

Proving Slope Criteria for Parallel & Perpendicular Lines
This lesson launches with learners graphing the fourth vertex of a given rectangle, and finding the length and slope of one of its sides; and ends with learners writing a summary sheet for parallel and perpendicular lines. In between,...

Equations for Tangent Lines to Circles
Don't go off on a tangent while writing equations of tangent lines! Scholars determine the equations for tangent lines to circles. They attempt both concrete and abstract examples, such as a tangent line to the unit circle through (p, 0).
