#6.2 - Graphing Linear Equations
In Slope-Intercept Form Objective: SWBAT graph linear equations

A linear equation graph will always create a line.
Linear equations are in the form y = mx + b or can be rewritten into the form y = mx + b. In this section, instead of making a table, evaluating y for each x, plotting the points and making a line, we will use The Slope-Intercept Form of the equation to graph the line.

Notice that these equations are all solved for y.
These equations are all in Slope-Intercept Form: Notice that these equations are all solved for y.

y = mx + b Formula for Slope – Intercept Form
‘b’ is the y-intercept (the point where the graph crosses the y – axis) ‘m’ is the slope

Just by looking at an equation in this form, we can draw the line (no tables).
The constant is the y-intercept. The coefficient is the slope. Constant = 1, y-intercept = 1. Coefficient = 2, slope = 2. Constant = -4, y-intercept = -4. Coefficient = -1, slope = -1. Constant = -2, y-intercept = -2. Coefficient = 3/2, slope = 3/2.

y = x

y = -3 x = 2

Sometimes we must solve the equation for y before we can graph it.
The constant, b = 3 is the y-intercept. The coefficient, m = -2 is the slope.
