At this point in any students' experience of learning to graph linear equations, they are beginning to notice that there are multiple variations available to them in order to graph a linear equation.
* They learn to graph a linear equation by finding the x and y intercepts.
* They learn to 'scale' their graph to fit comfortably, as needed, on the x and y axis.
* They are also provided with an example in a real life situation; they use the intercepts to graph an equation and find the number of railroad employees working within a specific range of time.
* A number of problems are included for the students to practice, and there are a couple of slides where they can demonstrate their ability and understanding of this new concept.
* Answers are included for student and teacher convenience, providing immediate feedback.
^ I feel confident that the product, "Graphing Lines Using the Intercepts' is a convenient and helpful tool for guiding students through a lesson in this wonderful discipline that we all know and love, mathematics.
Thank you and have an outstanding day!
LOVE TO TEACH!
