Product Description

This lesson was created for my Algebra 1 classes. It was designed to coordinate with Section 5.5 of the Prentice Hall CA Algebra 1 textbook. This PowerPoint shows students how to write the equation of lines that are parallel or perpendicular to given lines, and containing a given point. It does not use the point-slope formula, however. Instead, it uses the slope and the point and y = mx + b.

This is the third Powerpoint lesson I use to teach my students to Write the Equations of Lines. I have divided the topic into four lessons:

1. Writing Equations of Lines: Day 1 This lesson shows how to write the equation given the slope and the y-intercept, and how to write the equation given a graph. It also shows the slope-intercept form and standard form of the equation.

2. Writing Equations of Lines: Day 2 which shows how to write the equation given the slope and a point contained in the line, and how to write the equation given two points on the line.

3. Writing Equations of Lines that are Parallel or Perpendicular to a given line.

4. A review of writing the equations and graphing the lines with the information given.

*Common Core Standard:*

G-GPE 5. Prove the slope criteria for parallel and perpendicular lines and use them to solve geometric problems (e.g., find the equation of a line parallel or perpendicular to a given line that passes through a given point).

Previous California Standard for Algebra 1:

8.0 Students understand the concepts of parallel lines and perpendicular lines and how those slopes are related. Students are able to find the equation of a line perpendicular to a given line that passes through a given point.
