Parallel and Perpendicular Lines Activity & Notes Bundle


This low-prep parallel and perpendicular lines activity & notes bundle is an engaging way for students to learn and practice writing equations for parallel and perpendicular lines from graphs, equations, points, and word problems!

The set of guided notes & practice will guide your students through an exploration of equations of parallel and perpendicular lines. By the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and identify parallel and perpendicular lines, as well as find the equation of a line that is either parallel or perpendicular and goes through a given point.

In the mystery activity, students become suspects after a fellow traveler is murdered on the airplane. There are only a few clues about the murderer, and the students must write equations for parallel and perpendicular lines to figure out who it is!
