Algebra students will appreciate the simplicity of these notes with a short, animated presentation. Two six-question worksheets are included for a total of twelve practice problems.
Students will write equations in standard form, given two points or a slope and a point, while practicing clearing fractions and/or decimals, and checking to make sure that the "a" value is positive.
The student note-taking outline is not foldable, but can easily be inserted into an interactive notebook or used as more traditional notes.
The last two pages of the PowerPoint presentation are examples of the types of problems on the worksheets. Since writing equations of lines given two points or given a slope and a point would likely already have been taught before standard form, these examples are not included on the note-taking outline, but you could certainly have students copy them onto notebook paper as necessary.
