Algebra 1 - Determining Slope
Updated: Apr 26
This post explains and give practice opportunities related to TEKS A.3A:
determine the slope of a line given a table of values, a graph, two points on the line, and an equation written in various forms, including y = mx + b, Ax + By = C, and y - y1 = m (x - x1 );
Students practice determining the slope if given a graph, table of values, or two points through which a line passes. They also practice finding the slope if given equations in various forms.
Between 2016 and 2022 (including redesign practice), this supporting standard has been tested 7 times on the STAAR test. Videos explaining the problems can be found below.
