Investigating Linear EquationsLesson Planet
8th - 10th CCSS: Designed
Comparing lines to determine the effects of parameters. The activity instructs pupils to use a graphing calculator to graph groups of linear equations before comparing them. When graphing the linear equations, pupils determine the...
Interpret The Rate of Change /Slope in the Context of Everyday LifeLesson Planet
8 mins 8th CCSS: Designed
Find slope all around us and calculate the rate of change during this video that uses real-life situations. Your learners will start by creating a table to see how each change creates the pieces of slope. Plug that slope into your...
Interpreting Slope and Y-interceptLesson Planet
7th - 10th CCSS: Adaptable
Let your mathematicians decipher slope as more than just a number and create a context for the given slope intercept equation. The presentation contains three slides with different equations and asks what the slope and y-intercept...
Drops in a Bucket TaskLesson Planet
7th - 9th CCSS: Designed
There may be one right answer, but there isn't a right way to solve! Your learners are given a problem about the rate of rainfall and can pick their solution through graphing, making a table, or proportions. Based on the amount of water...
How Do You Find the Slope of a Line If You Have a Perpendicular Line?Lesson Planet
4 mins 8th - 11th
What kind of lines have slopes that are the opposite reciprocal of each other? Parallel lines? No. Parabolas? No. Perpendicular lines? Yes! Watch and listen as the instructor demonstrates how to make these determinations about...
How Do You Graph a System of Equations With No Solution?Lesson Planet
3 mins 8th - 11th
Two equations. What's the solution to this system? How can you solve it? Can you write the two equations in slope-intercept form? Yes, you can. Now graph each equation. Look, the lines are parallel. What does that mean? That means there...
How Do You Find the Slope of a Line from a Graph?Lesson Planet
3 mins 6th - 9th
Given a line on a graph, what's the slope of this line? First, identify two points on the given line. Then, use a formula to find the change in y and then the change in x. This will be represented by rise over run. Watch this video to...
What Does the Slope of a Line Mean?Lesson Planet
5 mins 6th - 9th
Evaluate the steepness of lines, also known as the slope, by watching this video. A tutor explains what the slope of a line is and compares two different lines to demonstrate slope. A practical introductory video for classes that are...
How Do You Use Point-Slope Form to Write an Equation from a Table?Lesson Planet
7 mins 7th - 9th
Given a table of x and y values, is it possible to write a linear equation from this information? There will be several steps involved. First is to use the point-slope formula to find a slope. Then use that slope and one of the ordered...
How Do You Graph a Line If You're Given the Slope and the Intercept?Lesson Planet
5 mins 6th - 10th
You have been given the value for the y-intercept and the slope of a line. Now you have to graph it. So draw a graph, plot your y-intercept and then count out your movement for slope. Don't forget to connect the dots and draw a line...
How Do You Check if a Point is on a Line If You Have a Graph?Lesson Planet
2 mins 7th - 9th
The instructor demonstrates graphically how to verify that a given point lies on the line of a given equation. She graphs a line in slope-intercept form, and then plots the point to verify if it is in fact, on the graph of the line.
What's the Formula for Slope?Lesson Planet
2 mins 6th - 10th
Slope? Does that mean the angle of the line on the graph? Yes, but it's not referred to as an angle on the graph. The slope of the line means how much does the line move up or down in comparison as to how much it moves left or right. So,...
What Does Undefined Slope Mean?Lesson Planet
5 mins 6th - 9th
The graph of a line with an undefined slope is a vertical line. Why is it undefined? It has something to do with the value of the x-coordinate. The x-coordinate determines the run of the slope. So what if the run is zero? The instructor...
How Do You Find the X-Coordinate of a Point on a Line If You Have Another Point and the Slope?Lesson Planet
2 mins 8th - 10th
Use the slope formula to find the missing coordinate. You've been given all the needed information to solve this problem. So all you need to do is plug in the values and solve for the missing variable value.
