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.
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.
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.
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.
Young scholars 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 instructional activity.
Students identify the slope of a line and use it to solve real life problems. In this algebra instructional activity, 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.
