This is a lesson in solving linear equations. More specifically, students will see how to solve an equation with a variable expression in the denominator of a fraction.
Making the transition from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids can be difficult for many geometry students. This comprehensive lesson starts with writing and graphing linear equations to define a bounded region and calculating the areas and perimeters of the space. Using this as a base, the lesson then has learners revolve these regions to create solid figures and calculate the resulting volume. A real-world example using a bowling ball and visualization software caps off this in-depth instruction.
Learners explore the concept of linear equations. In this linear equation lesson, students change parameters of an equation and notice the effect it has on its graph.
Here is a complete chapter on graphing linear equations and functions. Learners review graphing points on a coordinate plane, graph lines and functions, and write linear equations.
Explore linear equations with this video about lines with equal signs! The instructor demonstrates linear equations in a variety of ways: writing examples, plugging in solutions, and graphing equations. This resource could act as an effective introductory video for the concept of linear equations and is appropriate for in-class or at-home use.
Create a table of values based on a given linear equation. Input, output, function. Watch this video and learn how to set up a table to get coordinate points to make a graph of an equation. Make a column of selected x-values. Make a column for plugging in the x-value and solving the equation. Then make a column for the outcome, the y-value. Finally the x and y-values can be used for the coordinate points to make a graph of the linear equation.
Ninth graders solve linear equations. In this algebra lesson, 9th graders discuss the steps for solving linear equations and work through examples with the teacher. They work in pairs to create their own linear equation and complete a worksheet on the same topic.
Students solve linear equations using the slope and y-intercept. In this algebra lesson, students use linear equations to solve real life problems.
Young scholars study the standard form of linear equations and translate equations into different forms. For this linear equation forms lesson, students graph relevant information using slope intercepts. Young scholars use clues and solve for missing information. Students then rewrite equations into different forms. Young scholars complete a written partner test.
Ninth graders develop an understanding of and the applications for linear equations and their graphical displays. They participate in a cooperative learning activity of matching a graphic display with an equation.
Students explore the concept of linear equations.  In this linear equations instructional activity, students enter life expectancy data into their graphing calculator and plot the data.  Students make a scatter plot of the data and determine a linear equation to represent the data.  Students predict the life expectancies of a person born in a particular year.
Sharpen up your algebra class's graphing skills with this helpful instructional activity. Working as a class, math learners practice graphing linear equations from geometric representations. After working with a document camera and completing online research, they continue to work independently to master the skill of graphing. This instructional activity would be a great introduction to linear equations, or as remediation for struggling learners.
Students solve linear equations using the point slope formula. In this algebra lesson, students solve the equation of a line without the y-intercept or the slope using the formula.
In this algebra worksheet, learners solve linear equations through graphing and the use of formulas. There are 34 questions ranging from addition and subtraction of linear equations to graphing and substitution.
Students solve word problems using linear equations. In this algebra lesson, students relate the coefficient, slope and y-intercept of an equation to the each other.
Seventh graders explore battle plans using grids. In this linear equation lesson, 7th graders see how math is used in battle. Students create a grid on the floor using tape and plastic army men to serve as the points. Students discuss different scenarios of a battle. Homework will be given for practice.
Graph a linear equation by creating a table to get some values to plot. Select some values for x and plug them into the equation to get the y values. The x and y values make ordered pairs that can be plotted on the graph. After plotting the points, draw a line through the points to get the graph of the equation.
How many ways can you write a linear equation? Lots! Each form has its purpose in the world of algebra, so do you know how to write it in standard form? Ax+by=c. This is what standard form looks like. Can you rearrange the given equation to standard form?
Show your class what the point-slope form or a linear equation looks like and how to find it with this video. An instructor defines point-slope form and proceeds to work through an example. Great for in-class or at-home use.
Ninth graders discuss the real life application of linear equations, express linear equations in standard form (y=mx+b) and solve and graph simple problems using this equation.
