# Point-Slope Form Foldable

Post Contents

Here’s a Point-Slope Form Foldable I created for my Algebra 1 classes to glue in their interactive notebooks. It covers writing an equation given a slope and a point, writing an equation given two points, and graphing an equation in point-slope form.

Today, my Algebra 1 students learned about point-slope form.  This is the third and final form of a linear equation we will cover.  At first, my students were apprehensive about the new formula, but they quickly warmed up to it.  Today, we focused on writing equations in point-slope form and finding the slope and coordinates of the point from the equation.

Tomorrow, we will review this and create the following foldable.  Then, I hope to spend the rest of tomorrow’s class period reviewing once again how to rearrange equations to slope-intercept form.  My students are really struggling with rearranging equations.  I have a few who get it, but the rest seem to always divide when they are supposed to add or subtract and vice versa.  We’ve talked about following the order of operations backwards.  We’ve taken notes over it several times under different scenarios.  But, nothing seems to make the process click for my students.

## Alternate Point Slope Form Foldable

In 2015, I did a different type of foldable for point slope form.

The outside of the foldable featured four practice problems.

The inside of the foldable was stolen from Everybody is a Genius.

Can you please post a picture of the last page of the foldable, showing it graphed?

Did she ever post it?

I'm not sure if I still have a copy of it. Sorry!

I really like your post-it note method for reviewing this concept! Maybe another helpful addition to your foldable would be a page on converting from slope-intercept form to point-slope form? I think that students just need practice with this because all it really is is algebraic rearrangement.

Hi Sarah,
Can you send me the template for this foldable or instructions on how to create it?
Also, the last tab of the foldable?
I love it!

We cut a piece of paper in half. Shift the top layer up a smidge. Then, fold in half to make four tabs. The bottom tab just had an equation in point-slope form they had to graph. Sorry I don't have a picture!

I made a PDF of this flip book, I'd like to share it with your awesome community to keep creating good free materials. Let me know how. Thank you for all you do.

Michelle, is there a way you could get that to me? I'm hoping to this activity later this week or early next.
