Reflection: Intervention and Extension Comparing Linear Combinations in Ax +By= C to y=mx +b - Section 2: Guided Notes


I assigned the Khan Academy section on x and y-intercepts from the 8th grade curriculum. I gave students a due date later in the year, considering their work load and the importance of continual practice for the assessments. The assigned section was titled Two-Variable Linear Equations and Functions, with the subheading x and y-intercepts.  I assigned the 4 videos, and the two practices on finding the x and y-intercept from an equation and from a graph.  

Here's a URL:

My students had already viewed one of the videos during today's lesson.  A second video also explains how to find the x and y-intercept from a table.  The practice assignments were helpful for both remediation and extension. Since I can view the students' progress completing the two practices using Khan Academy (as their coach) I gain helpful information about their work with little investment of my time.  

Most of my students do have access to an internet capable computer at home. I have also made arrangements for some of my students to use resources in school to complete the assignment. At the end of the day, I still will take the time to give students a written assignment if all else fails. While I think that the experience using technology is helpful for my students, my most important priority remains helping them learn to think with the linear function concepts.

Comparing Linear Combinations in Ax +By= C to y=mx +b

Unit 3: Linear Functions
Lesson 9 of 20

Objective: SWBAT write linear combinations in the form Ax + By= C, then rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form using appropriate methods.

Big Idea: Recognizing the mathematical structure of a context involving a linear model helps students to write equations whose form is consistent with their thinking.
