# Lesson Plan: Equation of a Straight Line: Two-Intercept Form Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to represent a straight line in the two-intercept form using the 𝑥- and 𝑦-intercepts.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

- identify the equation of a line in intercept form, ,
- state the - and intercepts of a line given in intercept form,
- state the equation of a line when given its - and intercepts, algebraically or graphically,
- convert the equation of a straight line into intercept form,
- calculate the slope of a line given the - and intercepts.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

- graphs of straight lines,
- the equation of a line in
- general form,
- standard form,
- slope–intercept form,
- point–slope form.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

- the equation of a line in two-point form,
- curves.
