Writing equations for parallel and perpendicular lines can be difficult for many students. Hopefully, these structured notes will make it a bit easier for them and you!
One set of foldable notes (with three examples) focuses on writing the equation of a line parallel to another given a slope and y-intercept, an equation and y-intercept, or an equation and point. The second set of notes is very similar, and uses the same three situations (with three different examples), but focuses on perpendicular lines.
The notes may be used in interactive notebooks or in a more traditional note-taking format.
Two ten-question worksheets with mixed problems about both parallel and perpendicular lines, related to the notes, are included.
Here is another activity about writing equations for parallel and perpendicular lines:
