## Pearson Prentice Hall Algebra 1: Point-Slope Form and Writing Linear Equations

#### Activity Overview

This is Pearson Prentice Hall Algebra 1 Lesson 6-4: Point-Slope Form and Writing Linear Equations. It also includes Writing Equations of Lines from the TI-83/84 Plus Activities booklet. Students will graph and write linear equations using point-slope form and write linear equations using data.

#### Before the Activity

If you are using the TI-Navigator System with the TI-73 you will need the attached .pdf file.
Review the lesson PDF files.
Make copies of the lesson PDF files for your class.
Using LearningCheck™ Creator review the LearningCheck EDC files prior to class. They include Check Skills You'll Need, and Check Understanding questions from the lesson.
Make sure LearningCheck™ and Guess My Coefficients are on all student calculators.
Transfer the LearningCheck EDC files and Program file to student calculators using one of these methods:

• LearningCheck Creator "send to device" feature with a connectivity cable and unit-to-unit cables
• TI Connect™, a connectivity cable and unit-to-unit cables
• TI-Navigator™ "send to class" feature
• #### During the Activity

Students will:

• Graph and write linear equations using point-slope form
• Write linear equations using data
• Use the Guess My Coefficients App to practice writing equations of lines in slope-intercept form, y = mx +b, and standard form, ax + by = c.

• Directions:
• Distribute the student activity sheets
• Follow the procedures as outlined
• #### After the Activity

As a class, review student answers, discussing questions that appeared to be more challenging, and re-teaching as needed.
