What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?

1. What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?

Being able to read a graph isn't just vital for an algebra class. Graphs and charts are used everywhere! We'll take a crash course on the basic x/y plane used in algebra and the fundamental vocab you need.

Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane

2. Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane

If you'll be working with a graph, otherwise known as the coordinate plane, it's essential to understand how it works. This includes learning the parts of a graph, identifying points and plotting points.

How to Graph Reflections Across Axes, the Origin, and Line Y=X

3. How to Graph Reflections Across Axes, the Origin, and Line Y=X

A graph can be reflected in three ways - across the axes, the origin and the line y = x. There are specific rules to perform each reflection. This lesson will describe those rules and show you how to perform these reflections.

Orthocenter in Geometry: Definition & Properties

4. Orthocenter in Geometry: Definition & Properties

This lesson involves a well-known center of a triangle called the orthocenter. Its definition and properties will be discussed, and an example will be worked showing how to find its location on a graph.

Point-Slope Form: Definition & Overview

5. Point-Slope Form: Definition & Overview

A linear equation is an algebraic equation that, when graphed, creates a straight line. The point-slope form is one way to write a linear equation. This lesson will teach you how to write a linear equation in point-slope form and give you some examples.

Positive Slope: Definition & Example

6. Positive Slope: Definition & Example

In this lesson, you'll learn what slope is, and see some examples of positive slope. You'll also learn how to measure a line's slope on a graph. Then, you can test your new knowledge with a brief quiz.

Reflections in Math: Definition & Overview

7. Reflections in Math: Definition & Overview

A reflection of an object is a 'flip' of that object across a line. This lesson will describe the basics of reflection, how to recognize one and how to create one.

Rotations in Math: Definition & Overview

8. Rotations in Math: Definition & Overview

A geometric rotation refers to the rotating of a figure around a center of rotation. This lesson will get you going on rotations, give you some examples, and end with a quiz that tests your knowledge of rotations.

Similar Shapes in Math: Definition & Overview

9. Similar Shapes in Math: Definition & Overview

You've probably noticed similar shapes a lot in your daily life. This lesson explains the definition of similar shapes and gives you some tips on correctly identifying similar shapes in mathematics.

Connected Graph vs. Complete Graph

10. Connected Graph vs. Complete Graph

In this lesson, we will define connected graphs and complete graphs. Then we will go on to analyze the similarities and differences between these two types of graphs and use them to do an example involving graphs.

Complete Graph: Definition & Example

11. Complete Graph: Definition & Example

Graphs play an important part in the world around us. This lesson will discuss the definition of a graph in mathematics, and will explore a specific type of graph called a complete graph.
