AEPA Middle Grades Math: Linear Equations - Chapter Summary

In your proficiency test for middle grades math licensure, you could be asked to demonstrate an understanding of linear equations. In this chapter, you can review the various important strategies for writing and graphing linear equations. When you've worked your way through all of these lessons, you should have a good grasp of the following topics:

  • Standard form and intercepts
  • Going from a graph to a rule with linear equations
  • Undefined and zero slope
  • Writing linear equations

Our entertaining video lessons include fun graphics and are presented by experienced instructors. If you complete the brief, multiple-choice quizzes that follow each lesson, you'll know when you're set to move to the next concept.

AEPA Middle Grades Math: Linear Equations Chapter Objectives

Questions on algebraic concepts and functions make up about 33% of the exam, and this is the domain area where you can expect questions concerning solutions of linear equations and interpretations of the slope. The test includes 150 multiple-choice questions and you'll have four hours and 15 minutes to complete them. The multiple-choice questions in our quizzes and chapter test can be handy tools to practice for the real thing.

What is a Linear Equation?

1. What is a Linear Equation?

A linear equation is a pattern of numbers with proportional increase or decrease that is used to represent a line graph. Learn how to plot a graph and build and solve a linear equation.

Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing

2. Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing

To solve a linear equation, begin by determining whether it is written in the standard form or the slope-intercept form. Explore the differences between the slope-intercept form and the standard form of a linear equation, and learn how to graph the point of intercept for each.

Abstract Algebraic Examples and Going from a Graph to a Rule

3. Abstract Algebraic Examples and Going from a Graph to a Rule

Abstract algebraic concepts are often difficult to understand because they do not include many numbers but are mostly variables and letters. Learn more about abstract algebraic concepts, finding the equation on a graph, identifying graphs by appearance, and finding the greatest slope on a graph.

Graphing Undefined Slope, Zero Slope and More

4. Graphing Undefined Slope, Zero Slope and More

When the variable determining the slope is mathematically impossible but can still be graphed, it is referred to as an undefined slope. Learn how to compute formulas to graphs that have either undefined slope or zero slopes, and discover what this means for the line.

How to Write a Linear Equation

5. How to Write a Linear Equation

Rather than drawing a graph from an equation, graphs can be used to determine equations using common algebraic techniques. Learn how to write a linear equation using two points and the slope formula as well as using background information on parallel and perpendicular lines.
