This is an animated powerpoint presentation I made for my class this year to introduce a method for finding the slope-intercept form of an equation when you only have the slope and one point.
This method involves substituting the given information into y = mx + b and then solving for b. Using Point-Slope form could be introduced after this, but it isn't necessary if students can use this method.
The first slide is a warm-up problem followed by a few review problems about slope-intercept form. The next several slides are an animated presentation on how to find the equation of a line using the slope and a point. These notes are intended to go along with teacher instruction/questioning strategies. After a few example problems and a real-world example there are two slidese of practice problems for students to work on their own. The last note slide introduces the idea of finding the equation of a line using only 2 points.
