About This Quiz & Worksheet

The point-slop formula allows you to relate time and location in the form of an equation. This worksheet and quiz combo will help you test your understanding of how to perform these functions using the point-slope formula. These practice assets will specifically test your understanding how to define the point-slope form of an equation in three different scenarios.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these assessments, you'll be tested on:

  • Identifying the correct equation to meet certain parameters
  • Identifying the point-slope form of an equation that does meet certain parameters when given those specific parameters
  • How well you understand how certain parameters relate, such as slope and starting point

Skills Practiced

This quiz and worksheet will allow you to test the following skills:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the pertinent information on how to use the point-slope formula from the related lesson
  • Making connections - use your understanding of the form and purpose of an equation to better understand the purpose, usage, and form of the point-slope formula
  • Problem solving - use your acquired knowledge of the form of equations to answer practice questions in which you'll be asked to define the point-slope formula representation of a line, given certain parameters

Additional Learning
