Graphing Slope-Intercept Form
- Matt McBurney
Begin by changing the "b" value. Record what happens to the graph.
Try changing the "m" value. Record what happens to the graph.
Change the "m" from positive to negative. Record what happens to the line. Additionally, describe the line when "m" is positive and describe the line when "m" is negative.
What point could we immediately plot just by looking at the equation? (We do not want to use a table anymore to graph our lines)
Once we plotted that point, how could we get to another point on the graph?
