This week's math poll asks students to convert between forms of linear equations and explain their preferred strategy for finding a line through two points or a slope and a point.

Task #1

This task has students convert the given equation into standard form. Encourage your students to use the scratchpad to show their thinking!

Task #2

The next task has students convert the given equation into slope intercept form. Encourage them to use the expression editor, which makes it easy to work with and manipulate equations.

Task #3

In the third task, students are asked to determine which equation they would use to find a line through the points (-5, -4) and (0,8). In this case students can choose from more than one answer – hence it is important to encourage them to show their work and strategy when solving the problem.

Task #4

In the fourth task, students are asked to find a line with a slope of 5 through the point (0,8). Again, multiple answers are possible – so students should explain their work.
