  • Do you have a difficult time helping students to see how slope and intercepts can be expressed in context? In this session, you will use paper squares, toothpicks, and licorice to create inexpensive physical patterns that show slope and intercepts in the context of real life, and you'll learn lots of ways to help your kids make connections in algebra.
