There are three types or formats of linear equations or functions that are typically taught in Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 and Math I (standard form, SIF and point-slope). The attached MS PowerPoint slideshow describes in detail the steps I use to convert a linear equation in standard form to slope-intercept-form. This presentation is classroom-tested as I have used it when I taught 8th graders and I use for review purposes with my Math I 9th grade students. It not only specifies the steps to convert the standard form equation but also includes the steps to manually graph the line once the SIF equation is found. Of course once your students convert standard form to SIF, they can immediately put it in a graphing calculator to see the line (if a calculator is allowed!). This ppt presentation is fully animated and includes a certain amount of audio as well to keep the students engaged. The last slide includes 3 practice examples for the students to complete.
