Links verified on 1/15/2010

  1. Application of Linear Equations - this page is about a topic that most students hate, applications of linear equations - in other words story problems or word problems
  2. Fun and Sun Rent-a-Car - students use tables, graphs, linear functions to solve a real-world problem A lesson plan can be found at this site
  3. Graphing Linear Equations - introduction followed by an in-depth explanation, examples and two pages of practice questions This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  4. Graphing Linear Equations: Making a T-chart (finding plot points) - four pages of instructions with several examples and illustrations
  5. Internet Project - let your cursor hover over the Assess button and select Internet Project - Students will collect data and then make a scatter plot and a best fit line, find the slope, y-intercept and the equation of a line This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  6. Linear Equation Solver - [advanced] a java applet which lets your students enter variables [three equations, three unknowns] This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  7. Linear Equation Solver - select from three types of equations This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  8. Linear Equations in one Variable - Quia game quiz which asks students to solve one- and two-step linear equations and simple algebraic proportions as they work toward winning $1,000,000. This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  9. Linear Equations Review - Study the Examples provided to see the strategies used to solve various 1 and 2 step linear equations. The Algebra Tiles Practice activity will create the question, show the intermediate step(s), provide the answer to the equation and show how to verify the answer A video is available through this link
  10. Ratio/Proportion Problems from Ask Dr. Math - three pages of links to real-world problems
  11. Representations of Linear Functions: Cab fares - The charge for a cab ride is determined by the length of travel. Some companies also charge a basic, fixed amount. At this site you will find descriptions of fares of three competing cab companies and you are asked to suggest a new fare.
  12. A PowerPoint show related to this standardSlope-Intercept Form - [12 slides] this show uses animation very effectively, provides examples and the chance for student response and invludes a great real-world application of slope-intercept
  13. Solving Linear Equations - explanation provided by Study Guides and Strategies
  14. Solving Linear Equations - seven practice problems, solutions available for each problem This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  15. Solving Multi-Step Linear Equations - this two page explanation from Purple Math includes a large number of examples
  16. Using the X and Y Intercept to Graph Linear Equations - This follow up to the lesson on rate of change deals with linear equations written in standard form rather than slope intercept form
