Objective: Determine the role of the constants m and c in gradient-intercept form,

1) Using the top slider, change the value of m. How does this affect the graph of the equation? What specifically does the number m tell you about the graph?
2) Using the bottom slider, change the value of c. How does this affect the graph of the equation? What specifically does the number c tell you about the graph?
3) Based on the equation, why do m and c play the roles you have described?
