Lesson Plan: Equation of a Straight Line: Standard and Point–Slope Forms Mathematics • 9th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students to find the equation of a line in standard and point–slope forms given two points, a slope and a point, or a graph.


Students will be able to

  • identify and work with the equation of a line in standard form,
  • recognize the point–slope form of a straight line and write this given a slope and point on the line,
  • determine equations that represent straight lines,
  • identify the graph of a line given in point–slope form,
  • identify the intercepts of a straight line graph.


Students should already be familiar with

  • how to calculate the slope of a line.
