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.

Tutorial

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-y_{1}=m(x-x_{1})

Where m is the slope and y_{1} and x_{1} are points in an ordered pair.
