3. Growth Rate - Students will use the slope formula to calculate the rate of change between two points very near to the desired point. lesson plan from NCTM 4. How to Use the Slope Intercept Form (in Algebra) - explanation from Wiki How-to
5. Learning about Rate of Change in Linear Functions Using Interactive Graphs - lesson plan from NCTM 6. The Meaning of Slope and y-Intercept�in the Context of Word Problems - explanation from Purple Math
7. Practice Converting Linear Equations into Slope-Intercept Form - [11 slides] [This expired link is available through the Wayback Machine Internet Archive. If the page doesn't load quickly click on Impatient? at the bottom right of the page.] this show provides several opportunities for student practice - Expanded version of this show [25 slides]
8. Rate of Change: Connecting Slope to Real Life - a lesson on using slope to find the rate of change accompanied by graphs and explanations
9. Rate of Change Practice Problems - nine practice problems (including a graph to interpret) followed by an answer key
10. Slope-Intercept Form - [18 slides] this show uses animation very effectively, provides examples and the chance for student response
11. Slope Intercept Jeopardy - this show is in Jeopardy format; with five categories each with five questions - good for a while class review
12. 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
13. Finding the X Intercept and Y Intercept to Graph Standard Form Equations - five practice problems to practice using what was learned in the lesson above, followed by an answer key
14. Running with Dinosaurs - computing running rates using body measurements, footprints, and algebra - lesson plan from NCTM 15. Writing Equation of a Line - [short opening promo included] video lesson from YourTeacher.com  Internet4classrooms is a collaborative effort by Susan Brooks and Bill Byles.
