This product covers the Algebra 1 topic "Writing Equations of Lines in Point-Slope Form." It contains a set of guided notes with a corresponding exit ticket which can be used in order to assess student understanding at the end of the lesson. Answer keys for all items are included in this file. This lesson is typically used in an Algebra 1 setting during a "Writing Linear Equations" unit in which students write equations of lines in slope-intercept form, standard form, and point-slope form.
***This set of notes and exit ticket assumes that students already know both slope-intercept form and standard form.***
-Students will understand when to use point-slope form and how to appropriately substitute values into point-slope form.
-Students will write the equation of a line in point-slope form given a point and the slope.
-Students will re-write an equation from point-slope form into slope-intercept form and standard form.
-Students will write the equation of a line in point-slope form given two points.
-Students will write the equation of a line in point-slope form given a graph (with two marked points).
-Students will write equations of vertical and horizontal lines.
