Lesson Objectives

Graph linear equations in slope intercept form y = mx + b (GPS) (8MA_E2009-58)

Determine the meaning of the slope and y-intercept in a given situation (GPS) (8MA_E2009-57)

Time to Learn!

Interpret slope as a rate of change (GPS) (8MA_E2009-56)

Let’s Graph!

Definition of Slope

“The constant change of a line is called the slope of the line.” – Holt Textbook Pg 311

You should know two things about slope:

The “Types” of Slope

How to “Count”

Slope

If you are not familiar with either topic, click on the box for a quick review.

DefinitionsHome Page!

We “read” slope just like we would read a book: From LEFT to RIGHT.

The direction your line moves indicates the type of slope.

Types of SlopeThere are Four

Click on the green boxes to further explore each type! Slope Home Page!

It does not matter WHERE the line is located on the coordinate plane, but rather the direction. Often, we think of positive slope as a line going UP.

We can see slope in real life!Can you see the POSITIVE slope in the

picture above?

(click on the picture to check your answer)

With POSITIVE slope, the line rises from left to right.

With NEGATIVE slope, the line falls from left to right.

Often, we think of negative slope as a line going DOWN.

Check out the picture to the left! Can you find the NEGATIVE slope?

(click on the picture to check your answer)

Zero slope always looks like a HORIZONTAL line.

An easy way to remember this is by visualizing a person walking on your line.The person has ZERO slope because they do not go up or down.

Click on the graph to see this!

VERTICAL lines have undefined slope.

Think of “undefined” slope as having no where else to go, but up…or down!

Where would our person go in this graph? (click on the graph to see!)

Let’s Practice!Tell whether the slope of each line is positive, negative, zero, or undefined.Click on the graph to check your answer!

PositiveThe graph rises from left to right.

NegativeThe graph falls from left to right.

NegativeThe graph falls from left to right.

UndefinedThe graph is a vertical line.

ZeroThe graph is a horizontal line.

PositiveThe graph rises from left to right.

“The y-intercept is the y-coordinate of the point where the graph intersects the y-axis. The x-coordinate of this point is always 0.”

– Holt Textbook Pg 303

“The x-intercept is the x-coordinate of the point where the graph intersects the x-axis. The y-coordinate of this point is always 0.”

– Holt Textbook Pg 303

Football!When you hear “intercepts,” think:

Think of your line like the “path” Denard Robinson wanted his football to be thrown.

The y-intercept represents the point

where the line crosses the y-axis.

For our story, this is where Chris L. Rucker “intercepts” the ball.

The x-intercept represents the point where the line

crosses the x-axis.

For our story, let’s suppose Michigan State“intercepts” the ball again

at the x-axis.

Slope-Intercept Form

y = mx + b

“If a line has slope m and the y-intercept b, then the line is described by the equation y = mx + b.”
