I am very happy to share a power point on "Writing Equations in Slope-Intercept Form".
* This is the first form students become familiar with before they tackle Point-Slope Form and Standard Form.
* In writing equations in Slope-Intercept Form, students review writing an equation when given the slope and the y-intercept.
* Following the review, they are given a line graphed on a Cartesian Plane and write an equation from the information they see on the graph.
* There is extra work using negative slope, and there are real-life situations for students to experience and understand.
* One real life-situation that they encounter is about graphing data from a dieting person, and the other is data from a US Olympic Hurdling event.
* There are many opportunities for practice during the slides, and answers are provided.
* This is a great introductory lesson for students to go over and practice before learning to manipulate the different forms facing them in the next few lessons.
* Have a great day!
