This is an Algebra lesson for the SmartBoard on the standard form of a linear equation. This Notebook file starts with an explanation about the fact that there are several forms of an equation of a line. It reviews the concept that only two points are needed to draw a line and different forms provide different information about the graph. It introduces that standard form allows you to easily find the x- and y-intercepts, then leads to an exploration activity where students discover how this is possible. The discoveries of the exploration are summarized and the clear steps to use to graph a line in standard form are given. Numerous examples for demonstration follow, including several practice examples for students to work on independently. There are also a few problems requiring students to write the equation of a line in standard form.
