Ch 2: Working with Linear Equations in Trigonometry: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Linear Equations chapter of this High School Trigonometry Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about linear equations. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long, and they teach all of the components of linear equations required in a typical high school trigonometry course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other high school trigonometry work.
  • Identify the linear equations concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our High School Trigonometry Tutoring Solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about linear equations and earn better grades. This resource can help students, including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding slope-intercept form, the distributive property, undefined slope, the point-slope formula or any other linear equations topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their math learning
  • Prefer learning math visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their linear equations unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in high school trigonometry
  • Don't have access to their math teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning about linear equations simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live trigonometry tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about linear equations on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and re-watch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Learning objectives:

  • Find out why linear equations are powerful tools
  • Learn to apply the distributive property to linear equations
  • Discover how to graph linear equations
  • Discuss how to apply your knowledge of linear equations to abstract algebra problems
  • Find out how to write a linear equation

What is a Linear Equation?

1. What is a Linear Equation?

Most cars won't be able to run for more than 250,000 miles, so how much longer will your car live? Linear Equations are the most basic kind of algebraic function and can help you answer questions exactly like this. Learn about what they look like, how they come up in your life and why they are powerful tools.

Applying the Distributive Property to Linear Equations

2. Applying the Distributive Property to Linear Equations

When it comes to linear equations, there are certain steps you have to take to solve them. One of them is the application of the distributive property when you see a pair of parentheses. Watch this video lesson to learn how.

Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing

3. Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing

Do you know what to do if an equation doesn't look like y=mx+b?! If not, then this video is for you. Chances are the equation is in standard form, so we'll learn how to use standard form equations, how to graph them and why they can be helpful.

Abstract Algebraic Examples and Going from a Graph to a Rule

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

Just because you now know what a linear equation is doesn't mean that you are a master! This video will help you learn how to apply your knowledge of linear equations in more abstract algebraic ways.

Graphing Undefined Slope, Zero Slope and More

5. Graphing Undefined Slope, Zero Slope and More

There are two special cases when it comes to slopes on the xy plane: horizontal and vertical lines. Without any more information, these examples can be pretty confusing. But with a little instruction, they end up being some of the easiest lines to graph!

Graphs of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines in Linear Equations

6. Graphs of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines in Linear Equations

When we deal with linear equations, we sometimes come across equations that are parallel to each other or perpendicular to each other. You will see what they look like when graphed in this video lesson.

How to Write a Linear Equation

7. How to Write a Linear Equation

Simply knowing how to take a linear equation and graph it is only half of the battle. You should also be able to come up with the equation if you're given the right information.

Equation of a Line Using Point-Slope Formula

8. Equation of a Line Using Point-Slope Formula

It's time for a road trip to Las Vegas, and after four hours of driving at 60 mph ... Are we there yet? Learn the point-slope form of the equation of a line to help answer this age-old question.
