## Consolidate - POINT SLOPE FORMULA is the SLOPE EQUATION

Did you ever realize that the SLOPE EQUATION is the SAME as the POINT SLOPE FORMULA???? WHAT?!?! Check it out:

POINT SLOPE FORMULA is (y-y1)=m(x-x1)

SLOPE EQUATION IS m = (y-y1)/(x-x1)

Can you see where I'm going with this?
-Take the first equation
-Divide both sides by (x-x1)
-The result is the second equation!!!

So now you've shortened your "list of equations to learn" without really doing anything ;)

## Motivation

Motivation requires attention and interest. First, to keep their attention, I make sure my lesson plan includes short breaks and fun exercises every 10-15 minutes. Second, keeping the student interested may be more important than attention as it can ensure and extend attention. I suppose this works both ways, but if you can connect the material with their own interest the attention is there.

Take them deeper into the understanding of what they like and they will listen.

## Math and Music

There are many connections between Math and Music, and everyone LOVES music. I can't say the same thing about math, but using music to teach math has proven to be the only way for some of my students to get the points across. Anyone have any insight or know about new technology that aids this process?
