5.3 Write Linear Equations in Point-Slope Form

5.3 Write Linear Equations in Point-Slope Form

Author: Maddie H

This packet is to give a basic understanding of what point-slope form is and how you are able to use the equation. It will also show you how to write Linear Equations in Point-Slope Form.

This packet includes text with information on the equations. It also includes in a power point how to use point-slope form. Then there is another power point where people are able to try out point slope form and see how they did.

What we know...

Slope-Intercept Form: y=mx+b

  When m is the slope and b is the y intercept.

Standard Form: Ax+By=C

  Where A and B are not both zero (A, B, C are real numbers)


The New Equation...

Point-Slope Form: y-y1=m(x-x1)

  Where m is the slope and y1 and x1 are points in an ordered pair.
