Algebra Linear Equations Review 1January 24, 2010
Since the Chapter 5 Test grades were so low, we decided to spend two days reviewing how to do it. Based on how the lesson went, S & and I both think we should use this to teach the lesson in the first place. S created a class worksheet consisting of sets of problems of increasing difficulty.
Their assignment for each problem was to write the equation for the line in slope-intercept form. The first set gave them the slope and y-intercept. The second set gave them the slope and a point. The third set gave them two points. That’s as far as we got on the first day, but we’re going to continue next time by having them write the equations from graphs.
