Algebra 1 Writing Equations in Point-Slope Form in a PowerPoint Presentation
This slideshow lesson is very animated with a flow-through technique. I developed the lesson for my Algebra 1 class, but it can also be used for upper level class reviews. This lesson teaches how to write an equation using a slope and a point, write an equation in point-slope form from a graph and a slope, and write equations of lines using two points.
The presentation has 39 slides with LOTS of whiteboard practice. Use as many or as few of the problems to help your students learn each concept. For more PowerPoint lessons & materials visit Preston PowerPoints
Students often get lost in multi-step math problems. This PowerPoint lesson is unique because it uses a flow-through technique, guided animation, that helps to eliminate confusion and guides the student through the problem. The lesson highlights each step of the problem as the teacher is discussing it, and then animates it to the next step within the lesson. Every step of every problem is shown, even the minor or seemingly insignificant steps. A helpful color-coding technique engages the students and guides them through the problem (Green is for the answer, red for wrong or canceled numbers, & blue, purple & sometimes orange for focusing the next step or separating things.) Twice as many examples are provided, compared to a standard textbook. All lessons have a real-world example to aid the students in visualizing a practical application of the concept.
This lesson applies to the Common Core Standard:
High School: Algebra » Creating Equations A.CED.2
Create equations that describe numbers or relationships.
2. Create equations in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities; graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales.
Algebra » Reasoning with Equations & Inequalities A.REI.10
10. Understand that the graph of an equation in two variables is the set of all its solutions plotted in the coordinate plane, often forming a curve (which could be a line).
Functions » Interpreting Functions F.IF.4, F.IF.6
Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context.
4. For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship. Key features include: intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive, or negative; relative maximums and minimums; symmetries; end behavior; and periodicity.
6.Calculate and interpret the average rate of change of a function (presented symbolically or as a table) over a specified interval. Estimate the rate of change from a graph.
