Learn to identify the form of linear equation by looking at an equation. With many examples, practice recognizing the equation form, rearranging terms to fit and appropriate form, and then identifying the slope and intercept in an equation.

Class Experience

`At the end of this class, your student will be able to say, "I can name 3 forms of linear equations and explain the meanings of the parts of them, like m and b.” "I can look at a linear equation and identify the form that it is in."`
```I've been certified in the public schools for teaching math in middle and high schools. I received additional certified training for gifted and talented learners. I taught math for sixteen years and I've been a personal SAT tutor for seven years. My students have typically raised their scores between 100 and 300 points.  As a chemical engineer and project management professional in the world of business consulting and information technology consulting, I've completed over five levels of college calculus and applied mathematics and used these math and computing skills throughout my career.

The students I have taught had varying learning abilities that ranged from one with pronounced learning disabilities to gifted and talented. When it came to PSAT's and SAT's, each of them with impressive improvements in their scores.

It can be done!  I used a focused approach. We honed in on trouble areas, really understood the underlying math concept, and drilled for mastery.

```Necessary prerequisite knowledge:
Students should have some familiarity linear equations. Specifically, students should know what m and b mean in a linear equation, and be familiar with the forms of a linear equation.```

`Hello, Outschool parents and learners! I have nearly all 5 out of 5 ratings because I'm known for the kind of caring and high energy math instruction that really gets learners understanding math from the inside out.
