Several examples of equations in slope-intercept form are the focus of this video. Instructors who are reviewing slopes and functions with their math classes, or who are introducing the concept for the first time, will appreciate Sal's patient instruction and thorough explanations.
Using the subscriber website Explorelearning.com, young mathematicians observe changes in the slope and y-intercept and their effect on the graph of lines. This activity helps students develop an intuitive sense of the connection between an equation in slope-intercept form and its graph. Tip:This assumes the use of a computer for either individual or small group work; however, it could also be taught using a single computer in a teacher-directed lecture.
Alegebra amateurs identify the slope and the y-intercept given a linear equation in slope-intercept form by correctly completing some in class problems. They write the linear equation in slope-intercept form that corresponds to the given slope and intercept values when given a slope and y-intercept by correctly providing the answer to various problems.
Understand the y-intercept by solving 13 various types of problems. They involve defining the y-intercept's representation in the graph and why it is negative. Then, they determine which function rule relates to the graph. They also determine the value of x when the graph intersects the y-axis and explain why b is the y-intercept of a line when in slope-intercept form.
Students are introduced to linear inequalities in slope-intercept form. As a class, they participate when needed in a demonstration given by their teacher and practice graphing inequalities and describing the solution. They set up and solve their own system of linear inequalities to end the lesson plan.
