**1**-**20**of**130**resourcesBridging 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.

Given two points on a line, this video shows how to write the linear equation in point-slope form, slope-intercept form, and standard form. First, Sal reviews each of these forms, then calculates the slope, writes the equation in point-slope form, and finally converts the equation into the other two forms.

Given the coordinates for a point on a line and given the slope of that line, write an equation in point-slope form. Really, all that needs to be done is to use the formula for point-slope form and plug in the values.

Given a table of x and y values, is it possible to write a linear equation from this information? There will be several steps involved. First is to use the point-slope formula to find a slope. Then use that slope and one of the ordered pairs in the point slope formula again. After that is solved, convert the result into point-slope form. Got that? A little confused? Then watch this video.

Given a linear equation, rewrite it in different forms. No matter what form a linear equation is given in, it can be converted to the other forms. So that means every linear equation can be written in standard form, point-slope form and in slope-intercept form. Use the properties of addition property of equality, and the subtraction property of equality to move terms around. Watch this video to see how it's done.

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.

Given two points on a line, write an equation in point-slope form. But what's the slope? Oh, you have to figure out the slope first. That can be done given two points. Just use the rise over run slope formula. This isn't so hard after all. Of course the instructor will walk through the steps one by one.

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 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.

Students solve linear problems using point slope of type of equations. In this algebra lesson plan, students find the equation of a line given two points and no graph.

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 instructional activity, 9th graders write linear equations in point-slope form. The one page interactive instructional activity contains five multiple choice questions, a hint for each question, and is self checking.

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.

Students develop the concept of slope-intercept form and point-slope form. In this slope lesson, students graph lines given slope and an ordered pair. Students also graph lines that are in point-slope form.

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.

In this linear equations worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 18 different problems that include using standard and point-slope form. First, they write the equations listed in the first portion in standard form. Then, students give the point-slope form of the equation of the line with the given slope and point. They also determine the line that passes through the given points.
