Graphing Lines Using y = mx + b Slope Intercept

The most common way students learn to graph lines is using y=mx + b or the slope intercept method.  This is a great method because it’s straight forward and easy.  However a linear equation must be in y=mx + b form to use the slope intercept method of graphing.  Let’s look at a quick example. […]

Graphing One Variable Linear Equations

Often it’s the easy things we tend to “mess up” and from my experience when students graph one variable lines they make mistakes not because it’s hard rather they just never remember if y = a number or x = a number is a vertical line or horizontal line.  Let’s do a quick review of […]

Graph A Line With Two Variables Example 1

Here is an example of how to graph a line with two variables.  Remember to read the lesson on this topic. Basic steps to follow: 1. Not one way to approach these problems; generally you want to place the equation into y=mx + b form and graph 2. Another way is to find the x […]

Graphing One Variable Lines Example 1

Here is an example of how to graph a one variable line.  Remember to read the lesson on this topic. Basic steps to follow: 1. Lines that are x= a number are vertical though the point (x, 0) 2. Lines that are y= a number are horizontal through the point (0, y) 3. Make sure […]
