Converting to slope-intercept form
This video shows how to graph a linear equation in standard form. He shows three different examples where he changes each equation into slope-intercept form and graphs it. One of the examples is a line with a negative slope, one is a vertical line, and the last is a horizontal line.
Graphing a Line in Slope Intercept Form
In this short video, Sal shows how to graph a line in slope-intercept form.
Slope-Intercept Form of a Line
Using the subscriber website Explorelearning.com, young mathematicians observe changes in the slope and y-intercept and their effect on the graph of lines. This activity helps middle schoolers develop an intuitive sense of the connection between an equation in slope-intercept form and its graph. Tip:This assumes the use of a computer for either individual or small group work; however, it could also be taught using a single computer in a teacher-directed lecture.
Slope, slope-Intercept Form and Standard Form
Learners 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.
Writing Linear Equations in Slope-Intercept Form
In this writing linear equations worksheet, students find the x- and y-intercepts of 4 equations. Students then write equations for 4 problems given the slope and y-intercepts. Additionally, students rewrite 4 standard form equations in slope-intercept form.
What's Slope-Intercept Form of a Linear Equation?
A clear introduction to slope-intercept form, this would be helpful for learners who are struggling with this concept. You might also provide this instructional video for class members to use as they work on homework or class work. A solid resource.
Linear Equations in Point Slope Form
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.
Students listen and take notes on a lecture by the teacher on the slope-intercept form of a line. In this slope-intercept lesson, students identify the x and y intercepts from information on a table. They solve for the missing x and y values. Students work individually on solving and graphing equations.
Graphing Slope Intercept Form
Students explore problems involving the slope-intercept form. After discussing methods for graphing, identifying the slope and y-intercept, students work to solve and graph given equations. Correct answers are placed on the board and discussed.
Graphing Calculator Activity: Solving Problems with Two Unknowns by Graphing
In this graphing calculator worksheet, 9th graders use their calculator to solve a system of equations by graphing. Next, they write each equation in the slope-intercept form. Students state the solution, and graph the system of equations on the coordinate plane. They solve two multi-step equations.
Systems of Linear Inequalities in Slope-Intercept Form -- Lecture
Learners are introduced to linear inequalities in slope-intercept form. As a class, they participate when needed in a demonstration given by their teacher and practice graphing inequalities and describing the solution. They set up and solve their own system of linear inequalities to end the lesson.
How Do You Write an Equation of a Line in Slope-Intercept Form If You Have the Slope and the Y-Intercept?
If you are given the value for slope (m), and the value for the intercept (b), all you need to do is remember what the slope-intercept form looks like. Y=mx+b. Then you just have to plug the given values into the slope-intercept line of an equation.
Graphing - Using Slope-Intercept and Point-Slope Form
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.
Lines in the Plane
Students differentiate between parallel and perpendicular lines. For this algebra lesson, students graph linear equations using the slope intercept form. They classify lines based on their slopes.
Speed Graphing: Graphing Lines Using the Slope and Y-intercept
Learners graph lines using a short cut. In this algebra lesson, students graph linear equations after they rewrite the equation in slope intercept form, by finding the slope and y-intercept.
Can You Create a Fair Race?
In this algebra activity, 9th graders create a race allowing handicapped students a head start to make the race fair for everyone. They practice writing equations in slope intercept form while create connections between rate of change, slope ad constants of variation.
That's a Fine Line You're Walking!
Students experiment with Hiker program to practice real world applications of linear functions and develop their understanding of expressions, relationships, and manipulations involved in writing and graphing linear equations in slope-intercept form.
Identifying slope from Equations
Young scholars find the slope of a line given a linear equation in slope-intercept form. They also find the slope of a line given a linear equation in standard form. Students finally graph the line to show it visually.
Students solve linear equations and write them using two forms. In this algebra lesson, students write linear equations in the slope intercept form and the standard form. They identify the slope and y-intercept to help them graph the line.
Students identify the slope of a line and use it to solve real life problems. In this algebra lesson, students write linear equations in slope intercept form and make a correlation to its relation to the real world. They use the slope an y intercept to graph the line.
