• # Point Slope and Slope Intercept Review

Posted by Kurt Waldner on 1/24/2020

Today in class, we reviewed the entire process of finding the equation of a line using Point Slope and Slope Intercept.  The example problem we covered at the beginning of the class is attached here.  We used the majority of the class to work on the assignment (attached here).

For homework, complete the worksheet.  We will have a quiz early next week.  Have a wonderful weekend.  GO LIONS!!

• # Point Slope Formula

Posted by Kurt Waldner on 1/23/2020

Today in class, we checked Page 305-306 #3-30.  Actually, I should say that we tried to check it.  Multiple students didn't complete the assignment for one reason or another.  We are all better than this!!  We all need to take more responsibility to be prepared for each and every class.  Let's start tomorrow being ready for class and eager to learn.

There is no homework.

• # Point Slope Formula

Posted by Kurt Waldner on 1/22/2020

Today in class, we discussed a new way to write the equation for a line...POINT SLOPE.  This formula is similar to slope intercept and is often converted into slope intercept.  The formula is y-y1=m(x-x1) where m is the slope and (x1, y1) is a random point on the line.  We worked through many different situations using the new formula such as given a slope and a point or given two points.  We then used the remainder of class to work on the assignment.

For homework, complete Page 305-306 #3-30.

• # Returned Quiz

Today in class, we returned and checked the 35 point quiz on slope intercept equations.

There is no homework.

• # Quiz - Slope Intercept

Posted by Kurt Waldner on 1/17/2020

Today in class, we took the quiz on writing the equations of a line given specific information.

There is no homework.  Have a nice long weekend.  GO LIONS!!

• # More Review

Posted by Kurt Waldner on 1/16/2020

Today in class, we continued reviewing for the quiz on slope intercept.  Here are the topics for the quiz:

• Find the slope given two points
• Find the equation of the line given a graph
• Find the equation of the line given the slope and the y-intercept
• Find the equation of the line given the slope and a point
• Find the equation of the line given two points
• Find the missing value given the slope and two points (one of which has an unknown coordinate)

The review packet for the last quiz would be a great resource for studying.

For homework, review for the quiz.

• # Review

Posted by Kurt Waldner on 1/15/2020

Today in class, we reviewed slope, slope intercept, finding slope given two points, finding the missing value given a slope, finding the equation given a graph, finding the equation given the slope and a point, and finding the equation given two points.  We will continue reviewing tomorrow in preparation for the quiz on Friday.

For homework, review for the quiz on Friday.

• # Returned Quiz

Posted by Kurt Waldner on 1/14/2020

Today in class, we returned and checked the 41 point quiz on graphing and slope.  We will have another quiz rather soon covering the other parts of slope (slope intercept equation).

For homework, review for the upcoming quiz (Thursday?).

• # Quiz - Graphing and Slope Intercept

Posted by Kurt Waldner on 1/13/2020

Today in class, we took the 40 point quiz on graphing and slope intercept.

There is no homework.

• # Slope Intercept Equation

Posted by Kurt Waldner on 1/10/2020

Today in class, we checked Page 286-287 #3-29.  Honestly, this assignment should have been simple.  It all hinged on being able to find the slope and y-intercept and plug it into y=mx+b.  There were very few challenging problems (unless students made them more difficult for themselves).  Once we finished going over the solutions, we worked on a review (attached here).  The solutions are included in the attachment.  This was a good review for the quiz on Monday.

For homework, review for the quiz on slope intercept.  Have a warm weekend.  GO LIONS!
