Welcome to lesson 7 in this lesson we are going to learn another method to find the equation of a line.  Actually this method is my favorite it’s called the point-slope formula method.  I love this method because it’s straight forward and easy to remember.  As in any formula you have to pay special attention on how to plug-in the values so make sure to take your time.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• what is the point-slope formula
• the information we need to use the formula
• how to find the slope given two points
