Exploring Slope Intercept Form with Graphs and Physical Activity
Students will work in pairs and compose three different linear equations in slope intercept form. They will discover and describe how different values for the slope and y-intercept affect the graph. After graphing lines on graph paper, they will do a physical activity involving graphing.
Keywords: Slope, y-intercept, linear equations, graphing, y=mx+b, linear function, slope-intercept form, rate of change from an equation, y-intercept from an equation, describe the graph given parameters, write an equation of a line given parameters
