Mo and I split 8.5 into 2 days because the content seemed to be too much for the kids to get in one day. We taught writing equations in slope-intercept form, given a slope and an intercept. We also taught solving for "b" given a point and a slope and writing the equation of the line. On day 2, we did point-slope and wrote equations given 2 points. Hopefully, this will help the kids with understanding how to write the equations. We'll see.
