This chapter, Linear Equations, is part of our MTEL Mathematics study guide and preparation course. Let our expert instructors show you everything you need to know about linear equations to be successful on your MTEL Mathematics examination.

## MTEL Math: Linear Equations - Chapter Summary

This chapter is broken down into multiple, short lessons where our expert instructors show you the basic concepts behind linear equations before describing useful techniques for solving them. In this chapter, our video lessons will show you:

• Linear equation definitions
• Intercepts, standard form and graphing linear equations
• Abstract algebra and steps for going from a graph to a rule
• Ways to graph undefined slope, zero slope and equations
• How to write linear equations

Thanks to our short video lessons, led by mathematics experts, you'll have a deeper understanding of the linear equation concepts you need to be successful on the MTEL Mathematics exam. We'll also show you effective techniques for solving linear equation problems so that you can go into your test with confidence.

### MTEL Math: Linear Equations Chapter Objectives

The Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) Mathematics test is designed to test a future educator's readiness to teach mathematics or related courses to high school students in Massachusetts. This chapter, Linear Equations, is most applicable to the Patterns, Relations, and Algebra subarea of the exam and will be especially useful for questions dealing with graphs of linear equations and solving systems of linear equations.

The Patterns, Relations and Algebra subarea accounts for 23% of the exam's score weight and is one of the six testing areas found on the MTEL Mathematics test. The test consists of 100 multiple-choice questions and 2 open-response assignments and takes roughly 4 hours to complete.
