Bridging the knowledge gap between slope-intercept form and point-slope form, Sal explains that the forms are "just two different ways of writing the same equation." This piece of information will be useful to those who have a difficult time deciphering the different types of equations in algebra.
This activity helps young mathematicians connect the graph and the point-slope form of a line, by first solving a real-world problem and then using that example to motivate the understanding of the equation. By manipulating the gizmo, through the subscriber site, ExploreLearning.com, one discovers how changes in points change the graph of the line and the equation and then how this equation varies from the already familiar slope-intercept equation. 
Learners develop the concept of slope-intercept form and point-slope form. In this slope instructional activity, students graph lines given slope and an ordered pair. Learners also graph lines that are in point-slope 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.
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 balance equations and solve word problems. In this algebra lesson, students differentiate between point slope form and intercept form of a line. They identify lines based on their slopes.
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.
Students solve linear problems using point slope of type of equations. In this algebra lesson, students find the equation of a line given two points and no graph.
Students solve and graph linear equations using the slope and y-intercept. In this algebra lesson,students find the slope of a linear equations given two points and using the point slope formula to solve.
In this writing equations worksheet, students find the equation of a line containing specified points. They determine the slope of a line from given points. This two-page worksheet contains 20 problems. Examples and explanations are included in this worksheet.
In this point-slope worksheet, students write equations in standard and point-slope form. They find the x- and y-intercepts for the graph of a given equation. Students write the equation of a line for a given set of points. This one-page worksheet contains 32 problems.
In this standard and point-slope forms worksheet, students solve and complete 17 different types of problems. First, they write each equation in standard form. Then, students write each equation in point-slope form for the line that has the given slope and contains the given point.
In this Algebra I worksheet, 9th graders write linear equations in point-slope form.  The one page interactive worksheet contains five multiple choice questions, a hint for each question, and is self checking.
Illuminate the world of mathematics for your class - specifically, the process of linear equations. In this video, Sal teaches about linear equations in standard form after two videos on slope-intercept and slope-point forms. He defines standard form as "essentially putting all of the x and y terms onto the left-hand side of the equation," and goes on to demonstrate in a few examples.
Use this worksheet to write equations in both point-slope form and slope-intercept form. Start by writing equations given one point and the slope and finish by writing equations given two points and a few real-world applications. The worksheet would benefit from some added notes on slope-intercept form, but is a great resource to help students write linear equations.
Students differentiate between parallel and perpendicular lines. In this algebra lesson, students graph linear equations using the slope intercept form. They classify lines based on their slopes.
Young scholars investigate and solve linear equations using slopes. In this algebra lesson, students graph lines using the slope and y intercept. They also find the slope by rewriting their equation in to slope-intercept form from standard form.
In this Algebra I/Algebra II/Geometry learning exercise, learners examine the slopes of parallel and perpendicular lines and the relationship to the equation of the line. The four page learning exercise contains explanation of topic, worked examples, and four practice exercises. Answers to practice exercises are not provided. 
Students calculate the slope of a line. In this slope lesson, students use a graph, an equation or two points to help them calculate the slope of a line. They differentiate between a slope of zero and an undefined slope.
Ninth graders discuss the different forms of equations. In this algebra lesson, 9th graders talk about the pros and cons of algebraic equations. They discuss reflection across the x and y axis and write out the equation of the given reflection.
