Chapter 6 Lesson 7 – Finding The Equation Of A Line Point-Slope Formula

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

FYI: this course will prepare you for an entry level college math course. 

I know you are working really hard but think about how much you have learned! At this point in the course you should be able to:

* solve equations

* graph lines

* find the equation of lines

Now that you have the above skills the next series of lessons in this chapter will apply your skills to solve certain problems.

Hello John, I am writing to thank you. During the Summer I took and passed all of my GED courses with the exception of the Math test. I found your free math course online and listened and watched all of the videos, trying to educate myself utilizing the tools and tips that you provided. I have to admit, it was very overwhelming and at times I felt as though I was being taught in a foreign language. I scheduled my re-test earlier this week and I passed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It took me 22 years to feel confident enough to achieve this goal and I am forever grateful to you for offering this information online. You are heaven sent! Now I can apply for better paying jobs and attend college. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping others change their lives for the better!!” Sincerely, Alicia
