# Algebra 1 - Writing Linear Equations

Updated: Aug 16

This post explains and give practice opportunities related to TEKS A.2C:

write linear equations in two variables given a table of values, a graph, and a verbal description;

## Instruction

Students learn two new formulas for linear functions, the point-slope form and the standard form. Using what they learned in 8th grade math about how to find the slope and how to write a linear function in slope-intercept form, students now explore how to write linear functions given a set of coordinates in tabular form.

Sometimes students are given a story problem and have to use that to generate an equation for a linear function in either slope-intercept or standard form.

## STAAR Practice

Between 2016 and 2023 (including redesign practice), this readiness standard has been tested 16 times on the STAAR test. Videos explaining the problems can be found below.
