In the inquiry activity, students have to work with a partner with almost no guidance from the teacher to decide how they will order the "steepness" of a variety of ramps and staircases from least steep to steepest.
This challenge will lead them to find a way to assign numerical values to the steepness and make observations from there. It's a perfect way to build the foundation for the concept behind slope.
Here's a peek at what's included. Click here to download the Slope Teaching Guide and get the printables and teaching tips. The only "catch" is that there are a few ads included for related slope resources! :) Enjoy!
