Contributed By


The lesson summarizes four forms of equations with which students should be familiar. These include: direct variation, slope-intercept form, standard form, and point-slope form. Students will learn the benefits and uses of each. Prerequisite knowledge: Students must understand that linear equations have other equivalent forms that may be determined just by rearranging the equation using properties of equality. They must also know how to graph points on a coordinate plane and determine the slope of a line. Prior knowledge of intercepts is also recommended. Less
