Writing Linear Equations Review Activity | Adventurous Joe


Looking for a highly engaging Writing Linear Equations Activity? This self-checking linear equations review game is unlike anything your students have seen before and includes an animated story with alternate endings!

In this Adventurous Joe activity, Joe enters a time machine and accidentally goes back to the prehistoric period! He needs to find his way back to the time machine before the cavemen & dinosaurs capture him. Students must write the linear equation correctly so Joe can escape!

Problem types include: Writing linear equations from graphs, word problems, equations, and 2 points (by graphing). Equations are all written in slope-intercept form.
