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.
In this short video, Sal shows how to graph a line in slope-intercept form.
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.
There are many pieces and many parts to this problem. It seems simple enough to write an equation in slope-intercept form. In this problem, there is a given table of values and information from this table is used to get an equation written in slope-intercept form. The instructor explains each step as she goes, so hang on to your hats and follow along.
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.
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 students 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.
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.
Given two points on a line, write an equation in slope-intercept form. But what's the slope? Oh, you have to figure out the slope first. That can be done given the two points. Just use the rise over run slope formula. This isn't so hard after all. Now use the slope and one of the given points to find the y-intercept. Now just plug the values into the slope-intercept form. Good job!
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.

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.
Starting with three linear equations, how can you tell which lines are parallel? The first equation is rewritten in slope-intercept form. The second equation represents a horizontal line, so it is already in slope-intercept form. The third equation is rewritten in slope-intercept form to verify that the slope was easily determined from the original form. In the final part of the video, the slopes are then compared to find parallel lines.
Several examples of equations in slope-intercept form are the focus of this video. Instructors who are reviewing slopes and functions with their math classes, or who are introducing the concept for the first time, will appreciate Sal's patient instruction and thorough explanations.

Demonstrate slope-intercept form and how to find the x and y intercepts before graphing a line. This simple example will provide a great start to graphing.
This may seem like a complicated problem, finding an equation that is parallel to the given equation and passing through a given point, and writing it in slope-intercept form, but it's really not. It's just a matter of rearranging formulas. All the information needed to solve this problem is given. So watch this video and see the instructor go through solving this problem in a step-by-step method.
Looking to teach your class how to find the y-intercept of a line using another point and the slope? Consider this video as an instructional tool. Learners can watch as a lecturer demonstrates how to find the y-intercept, using the equation for slope-intercept form. Suitable for in-class or at-home use.
Break out the calculators to graph linear equations. After a review of how to rewrite an equation in slope-intercept form, give the class various linear equations. They will put the equation in slope-intercept form, and then use this to graph the line on their calculator.
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.
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.
