Let's quickly review the steps for writing an equation given two points: Find the slope using the slope formula. Write the equation using the slope and y-intercept.
Summary Students learn about four forms of equations: They graph and complete problem sets for each, converting from one form of equation to another, and learning the benefits and uses of each. Engineering Connection The idea of slope as the rate of change is essential to understanding how lines are graphed.
Engineers must be able to create and also understand graphs that can explain sets of data. Mechanical engineers read and understand graphs that show displacement, velocity and acceleration to then analyze data from testing sites to learn how to design their products such as cars and airplanes to be more efficient and safe.
In journal questions of the summary assessment, students think as engineers, considering the meaning of key data points and the purpose of using lines to model data.
Pre-Req 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.
Learning Objectives After this lesson, students should be able to: Distinguish between different forms of equations, including direct variation, slope-intercept form, standard form and point-slope form.
Explain what is meant by the term equivalent equations. Convert from one form of equation to another. Tell when each form is useful and how to graph using each form. Use the slope of a parallel or perpendicular line along with a point on the line to write the equation of the line in any of the three main forms.
Students learn how to quickly and efficiently interpret graphs, which are used for everyday purposes as well as engineering analysis. The focus is on students becoming able to clearly describe linear relationships by using the language of slope and the rate of change between variables.
High School Lesson A Tale of Friction High school students learn how engineers mathematically design roller coaster paths using the approach that a curved path can be approximated by a sequence of many short inclines. They apply basic calculus and the work-energy theorem for non-conservative forces to quantify the friction along a curve High School Lesson All about Linear Programming Students learn about linear programming also called linear optimization to solve engineering design problems.
They apply this information to solve two practice engineering design problems related to optimizing materials and cost by graphing inequalities, determining coordinates and equations from Slope Students learn about an important characteristic of lines: Students get an explanation of when and how these different types of slope occur.
In the ASN, standards are hierarchically structured: Common Core State Standards - Math Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship, e. View more aligned curriculum Do you agree with this alignment? Yes No Thanks for your feedback!
Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two x, y values, including reading these from a table or from a graph.Before you start!
This 2-page worksheet gives more practice on equations in Slope Intercept Form (y = mx + b). These examples here show how the y-intercept is found, how to convert linear equations from standard to slope intercept form, and how to use this form to solve problems on slope and on the points on the line.

Writing Linear Equations Date_____ Period____ Write the slope-intercept form of the equation of each line. 1) 3 x − 2y = −16 2) 13 x − 11 y = −12 3) 9x Create your own worksheets like this one with Infinite Algebra 1.
Free trial available at initiativeblog.com The slope-intercept form is one way to write a linear equation (the equation of a line).
The slope-intercept form is written as y = mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept (the point where the line crosses the y-axis).
