**The Slope-Intercept Form of a Line**

Topic 4.4.3 The Slope-Intercept Form of a Line California Standard: 8.0 Students understand the concepts of parallel lines and perpendicular lines and how their slopes are related. Students are able to find the equation of a line perpendicular to a given line that passes through a given point. What it means for you: You’ll plot graphs and solve equations using a method called the slope-intercept form of an equation. Key Words: slope-intercept form intercept
