Graphing by Finding Intercepts

There's more than one way to graph a line. A video presentation explores graphing linear equations by finding the intercepts. After explaining the concept of an intercept and how it relates to its coordinates, the presenter demonstrates how to find intercepts given linear equations in various forms. He then transfers the intercepts to a coordinate plane and completes the graph.
