Slope-Intercept Form

Activity Overview

Students write linear equations in slope-intercept form and graph them. Students practice identifying slope and y-intercept and writing equations from a graphs.

This Activity comes from Prentice Hall's © 2007 Algebra 1 textbook.

Before the Activity

  • 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 the LearningCheck App is 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:

  • Learn to write linear equations in slope-intercept form.
  • Graph linear equations.
  • Practice identifying slope and y-intercept.
  • Write equations from graphs.
  • Write equations, given slope and y-intercept.
  • Directions:

  • Distribute the student activity sheets.
  • Follow the procedures as outlined.
  • After the Activity

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