This worksheet is designed to replace a lecture on how to write equations of lines in slope-intercept form when given the following two different scenarios:
- You are given the slope and one point on the line;
- You are given two points on the line;
I start out class with a 15-minute "mini-lesson," giving my students some basic examples of what today's lesson will be about. Once the mini-lesson is over, I have them get to work within their groups on this worksheet.
I use this activity within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.
The file includes spiral review problems.
This worksheet is intended to be written on directly.
Please download the pdf preview file first, so you can see exactly what's included; the product file is a word document, which you may personalize for your students.
Immediately before this worksheet, I use the worksheet named 'Review Quadratics and Factoring Spring 2014' (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Review-Quadratics-and-Factoring-Spring-2014-1271863
), and immediately after this worksheet, I use the worksheet named 'Transformations of Quadratic Functions for Algebra Spring 2014' (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Transformations-of-Quadratic-Functions-for-Algebra-Spring-2014-1272584
