In our last two FLEX days, eighth grade has done some hands-on work with equations of lines in slope-intercept form.  They had to use eight lines to create a snowflake image on a coordinate grid.  For each line, they were required to list two ordered pairs (x,y), and write the equation of the line (y=mx + b).  One the graphs were drawn, they needed to make a 3D image of the snowflake using materials from our Maker Space.  We had some unique choices to build our snowflakes with, including: spaghetti, forks, wooden sticks, pipe cleaners, beads and more!
