Graphing Linear Equations Lesson Plan

Instructor: Josh Corbat

Josh has taught Earth Science and Physical Science at the High School level and holds a Master of Education degree from UNC-Chapel Hill.

In this lesson, students will practice converting between the slope-intercept and standard forms of linear equations. Then, students will graph linear equations using two common procedures that each start with the standard form.

Learning Objectives:

After this lesson, students will be able to:

  • convert equations between standard and slope-intercept forms.
  • graph linear equations from either standard or slope-intercept form.

Length

60-90 minutes

Curriculum Standards:

  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSA.REI.D.10

Understand that the graph of an equation in two variables is the set of all its solutions plotted in the coordinate plane, often forming a curve (which could be a line).

  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSA.REI.D.11

Explain why the x-coordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y = f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where f(x) and/or g(x) are linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions.
