# Slope of Lines Minecraft Math Project

## Overview

If you're looking for a fun way to teach your eighth graders about slope and rate of change, this Slope of Lines Minecraft Math Project is perfect for you. This math project blends the popular Minecraft theme with real-life math projects, keeping students engaged as they apply the slope formula to calculate slope of lines of the famous Minecraft character, Alex (part 1). Students also get to design their own slope sketches image (part 2). Aligned with CCSS 8.F.B.4, this hands-on activity sparks creativity while practicing slope.

## Why you'll love this

Looking for a way to make slope engaging? Try this unofficial Minecraft-themed activity — where students make and engage with art as they practice classifying lines, and finding the slope by applying the slope formula to two coordinate points.

It includes comprehensive teacher and student instructions, with a handy review section reminding students how to classify lines and compute slope (aka rate of change). This can be used as a project to review slope or even am extra credit assignment.
