# Line It Up!

Lesson 6 of 9

## Objective: SWBAT write equations of lines that are parallel and perpendicular given slopes and points. SWBAT construct parallel and perpendicular lines.

#### Do Now

*10 min*

Students will find the slope of a line given 2 points. This is a pre-requisite skill but may require review for students, particularly the slope formula.

*expand content*

After reviewing parallel and perpendicular lines, we will review with students how to write equations in slope-intercept form and point-slope form. Then, you can focus on how to write parallel and perpendicular lines with given information like an equation and a point (MP #8).

The topic covered in this section are a review of CCSS in Algebra and you may find that students with weaker backgrounds need a more concrete review of this topic. The next lesson in this curriculum, Perp Lines are Perfect!, will continue to review writing equations.

#### Construction

*10 min*

Students will read through the steps to construct a parallel line through a given point, and can watch the video of this being constructed (MP 5). I like to watch the entire video first, read through the steps to construction, and then go through the construction step by step with the whole class. There is a second practice example provided for students to try on their own.

This is a packed lesson and there may not be time for students to complete the activity; in this case the class work can be assigned as homework.

For the exit ticket, students will write the equation of a line perpendicular to a given line and through a given point. This may be a good exit ticket to collect to see how and if students have strong algebra skills or if this topic needs further reinforcement.
