So why did I title this “Math Favor Friday”?? Well, I’d like to reserve Fridays not only for Algebra 1, but also to answer one of YOUR math questions that you might have had in class during the week! I didn’t have any takers for this Friday, but I’m going to keep the offer open. So if you come across my blog and don’t see your specific question in any of my current videos…just leave me a comment, send me an email, or find me on one of my social accounts (those buttons at the very top of my page and let’s use #mathsaverfavor) and ask away! If I get too many requests I will pick the most-asked question for that week…otherwise I will answer everyone’s questions each Friday!!
For Algebra 1 this week, a lot of my students are learning how to write the equation of a line using slope-intercept form and point-slope form. They always have the most trouble when asked to write the equation of a line that’s parallel or perpendicular to another line…especially if it’s a vertical or horizontal line! Watch the following video to see a few examples of how to do this without making any of the common mistakes.
Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you next week!
