Students discover how to write an equation of a line from two points, as well as discover what information is found by looking at different forms (standard, slope-intercept) of linear equations.
This resource uses the context of two students visiting an amusement part to examine different forms of linear equations, including writing equations of lines.
The first part of this resource is a 4 page handout which could be used as a class activity or notes. Students learn about writing an equation of a line given the slope and a point, or two points. Then students explore slope-intercept, standard, and point-slope forms of
linear equation, and what information can be gained by looking at equations in each form. Throughout the resource, students begin by solving concrete problems, and then connecting this work to the algebraic notation.
This resource also contains two practice sheets: one about writing equations of lines, and one about converting between slope-intercept and standard form.
**This product is can also be purchased at a discounted price as a part of the Slope Intercept Bundle
or Linear Equation and Inequality Bundle
