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 learners. 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.
Can your class write linear equations three different ways? Here is a study guide that includes slope-intercept, standard, and point-slope forms. Learners are given the slope and a point on the line, or two points and are asked to write linear equations in all three forms.  Horizontal and vertical lines are also included.
Students explore the concept of linear equations. In this linear equation instructional activity, students change parameters of an equation and notice the effect it has on its graph.
Students participate in a mathematics game in order to investigate the concept of linear equations. They practice using rotations of the game to solve the equations. The teacher can intervene as necessary.
Linear equations, coordinate planes, and systems of equations are covered in this extremely well-organized lesson. Composed of a series of mini-lessons, the instruction aims at explaining a different facet of solving systems of linear equations. Each mini-lesson inlcudes a printable document, procedure, and objective.
Mathematicians use an inquiry method to solve linear equations. In this linear equations lesson, young scholars practice solving equations using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They solve multi-step equations and equations with variables on both sides of the equal sign. Each section features a class discussion, and work sample questions. The final activity requires students to work in small groups to plan a one-day trip to France.
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.
In this linear equations learning exercise, students write the equation of a line with given characteristics. They identify the slope of a line and the y-intercept. Explanations and examples are provided at the beginning of the learning exercise. This six-page learning exercise contains 57 problems. Answers are provided on page six.
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.
Young scholars 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. In this linear equation forms lesson plan, 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.
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.
Sharpen up your algebra class's graphing skills with this helpful lesson. 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 lesson would be a great introduction to linear equations, or as remediation for struggling learners.
Students create and solve a system of linear equations in a real-world setting. By solving the system, students will find the equilibrium point for supply and demand. Students should be familiar with finding linear equations from two points.
In this algebra worksheet, students 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 plan, 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.
