Graph a Direct Variation Equation (Negative Slope) Example 2

Bypass the table and go straight to the graph. A short video shows one example of graphing a direct variation equation with a negative slope by using the same method as graphing an equation in slope-intercept form. Pupils see it's easy to plot the slope from the origin to create the graph.

Instructional Ideas
  • Compare the method of graphing with graphing using a table
  • Provide a set of practice problems with both positive and negative slopes to graph
Classroom Considerations
  • Individuals should be able to graph lines using slope-intercept form
  • Uses colors to graph steps of the solution process
  • Graphs multiple points on the plane to show the extent of the complete line
  • None
