Standard Form of a Linear Equation Foldable

Today I’m sharing a standard form of a linear equation foldable I created for my Algebra 1 classes. 

Last week, my Algebra 1 students worked with linear equations in both slope intercept form and standard form.  We practiced graphing equations in standard form by converting to slope intercept form and by graphing intercepts.  At first, my students did not like graphing intercepts.  However, after several problems, that became their method of choice.

I created a foldable to help students organize their notes on standard form.  I wanted students to know exactly where to look for the steps in solving and where to find a completed example.

Here is a picture of our completed booklet foldable after being glued in our Algebra 1 interactive notebooks.

On the inside of the foldable, we solved the same problem using both methods.

Print it double-sided and have students glue the blank side into their notebooks.  I would suggest writing on it before gluing it in your notebook!

I also created a standard form of a linear equation cut and paste activity for my students to complete that you might be interested in.

Thank you so much for providing this resource! My son was absent from school today, and this is what his teacher used, so I was able to print it for him and now he will be less behind in class when he returns.

That the Simplex Algorithm (pivoting) revises the scalars on the “Tableau of Detached Coefficients” in the way one computes them with matrix-vector algebra is verified by experience only! The revision formula for i neq i_{0}

bar{a_{i, j}} = ( a_{i, j}a_{i_{0}, j_{0}} - a_{i, j_{0}}a_{i_{0}, j} ) / a_{i_{0}, j_{0}}

with pivot a_{i_{0}, j_{0}} is not written in any textbook as if it is unnecessary. A “Fundamental Theorem of Simplex Algorithm” is due to be proven. Am I right?

I'm really excited to use this on Monday with my students! We are solving systems of equations by graphing, and they are really struggling with remembering how to graph in standard form. I think this will be a great intervention for them. Thanks for sharing :)

I cannot find your file for the cut out activity to convert from standard form to slope-intercept form. I've looked through you entire box folder.

Can you please share?
